News Literacy Project: Free Professional Development Webinar

The News Literacy Project (NLP) is an innovative national educational program that mobilizes seasoned journalists to work with educators to teach middle school and high school students how to sort fact from fiction in the digital age.

Students learn how to distinguish verified information from raw information, spin, opinion and propaganda — whether they are using search engines to find websites with information about specific topics, checking a friend’s Facebook page, viewing a video on YouTube, watching television news or reading a newspaper or blog post.

We’d like to thank Frank Baker for posting this announcement on Making Curriculum Pop. We thought we’d share it over here as well.

professional development session for teachers anywhere in the world.
