To prepare our students as critical thinking, responsible citizens, we need to teach them how to search for and locate REAL information. In this session we'll look at strategies to get to facts and primary sources. We'll also look at how knowing these can help us to design better lessons that lead to deeper learning.

Learning Outcome #1
Create lessons that provide authentic opportunities for students to distinguish between real and fake new

Learning Outcome #2
Understand how media messages shape our culture and society, and be able to advocate for the inclusion of comprehensive media literacy at all grade levels.

ISTE Knowledge Constructor: Students critically curate a variety of resources using digital tools to construct knowledge, produce creative artifacts and make meaningful learning experiences for themselves and others.
