Media Literacy in the Era of Fake News

Recording: Media Literacy in the Era of Fake News, Mar 7, 2018

We all must navigate a confusing and charged landscape teeming with media of every caliber and intention, including intensely partisan sources and fake news. How do we teach students to be not just media literate, but media savvy? What tools can inform yet also free us from our own filter bubbles? Journalism teacher Jonathan Rogers discusses these issues and more with Julie Smith, media literacy professor and author of Master the Media: How Teaching Media Literacy Can Save our Plugged in World.
