Recognizing Lies: An Introduction to Literacy in the Post-Truth Era
with Susan Brooks-Young
Thursday, November 30 - 1:30 PM PST
The spread of misinformation is nothing new, but websites and social media make it far easier to distribute and more difficult to detect. This webinar offers an overview of literacy skills today's educators need, both personally and to help their students become more discriminating consumers of media. Online resources will be provided for use following the webinar.
An experienced teacher and administrator, Susan Brooks-Young works with educators internationally, focusing on practical technology-based strategies for personal productivity and effective technology implementation in classrooms. Mobile technologies and BYOD programs are areas of particular interest for her, as is thoughtful, deliberate use of social media.
