Fake News & Conspiracy Theories: Countering Ignorance with Critical Thinking Skills & Classroom Activities

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Disinformation, conspiracy theories, and fake news have found fertile breeding ground on the Internet and social media. Our job as educators is to help students develop skills and techniques to critically analyze these stories, and to separate fact from fiction. Join veteran teacher Douglas Lamb as he shows how fake news and conspiracy theories have been around for ages, how they're getting worse, and how 'hate-clicks' are driving their growth. Most importantly, this session will also allow teachers to develop some in-class techniques and activities that will allow your students to critically and intelligently address these issues.  Appropriate for all grades and subjects.
