Media Literacy and Fake News replay
with Karen Bonanno, National Director, Eduwebinar


[Note: As Daylight Saving Time has commenced in Australia please check the time of this event in your time zone at Event Time Announcer.]


Young people tend to be fooled by “fake” news and, for most, they get their news from social media platforms rather than traditional news sources.


Recent studies reveal that students struggle to clearly identify what are “real” news stories, with a percentage of students indicating they had shared news stories online that they later found were wrong or inaccurate.


This session will share some of the research findings and then explore the following:

  • what is media literacy and why we need to teach it to our students;
  • what is fake news and the importance of lateral reading;
  • teaching strategies to identify and analyse fake news;
  • classroom activities with simple rubrics; and
  • digital resources to support classroom programs.

What previous attendees had to say about this digital broadcast:
“The content was relevant and easy to follow.”
“Very useful information, particularly the examples shown and the links provided. The statistics at the beginning provided a great framework for why this is so important.”
“Looking forward to exploreing the resources shared and how I might use these with my students & share with staff at my school.”
“Great webinar – timely topic and well presented.”
