How to tell fake news from real news In November 2016, Stanford University researchers made an alarming discovery: across the US, many students can’t tell the difference between a reported news article, a persuasive opinion piece, and a corporate ad. This lack of media literacy makes young people vulnerable to getting duped by “fake news” — which can have real consequences. Want to strengthen your own ability to tell real news from fake news? Start by asking these five questions of any news item:
Washington Post 10 saker en tonåring kan lära på sommaren Here’s a list of things teenagers can do to really forget school and do some learning, courtesy of cognitive scientist Roger Schank, an artificial intelligence theorist and education reformer who is is the John Evans Professor Emeritus of Computer Science, Psychology, and Education at Northwestern University. He has taught at Stanford and Yale universities and is the former head of the Institute for the Learning Sciences. He is also the author of “Teaching Minds: How Cognitive Science Can Save Our Schools.” This appeared on his blog, Education Outrage. Battling Fake News in the Classroom In this post-election period, there has been a lot of discussion about fake news, particularly about how it is spread and shared online, and whether it influenced the recent presidential election. On November 22, Stanford University released an influential study showing that middle and high school students—and even some in college—have trouble distinguishing which online resources are credible. The inescapable fact is that young people need to be prepared for the Wild West of information that they live in and will grow up in. It is also imperative that we, as educators, prepare young people for the important job of responsible and informed citizenship.

Those of us who don’t have stories to tell of their own can at least recite stories they have witnessed. We’ve all grown up watching it happen at school, in summer camps, in the movies, on a comical show on the small screen in the living room; it’s everywhere. We have normalized it, we have accepted it, and as it moved with us to the digital age, we didn’t attempt to stop it. Cyberbully 2015 is a very interesting TV drama that successfully sheds the light on many topics we’d otherwise rather turn a blind eye to. Here’s how!
8 Engaging Ways to use Technology in the Classroom to Create Lessons That Are... Are you tired of delivering the same old lectures on the same subjects year after year? Are you using the same lesson materials over and over and wishing you could make learning in your classroom more interactive? While lectures and lessons can be informative and even “edutaining” when delivered with passion and good materials by knowledgeable experts, sadly many traditional lectures and lessons are boring, and even worse often ineffective. The good news is that the Web is loaded with great free tools that can enable teachers to bring a sense of fun and engagement to their lessons. Of course, you do need devices with Internet access to give these tools a try. Even if you don’t have computers or tablets available in your classroom, the fact that an increasing number of High School and college students have smartphones is making it easier than ever to leverage technology to create engaging, active lessons students enjoy working on.
Getting literal about media literacy in K12 The issue of fake news drew national attention during the 2016 presidential campaign, when fabricated stories were widely accepted as genuine. According to recent research, the problem extends to K12 classrooms, where students have trouble judging the credibility of online information. A national assessment of 203 middle school students by Stanford History Education Group at Stanford University found that more than 80 percent believed ads labeled “sponsored content” are a credible source for unbiased news. Now provided across 12 states, Stanford’s “Civic Online Reasoning,” which includes assessments to judge the credibility of information, consists of 56 news-literacy tasks to identify misinformation and fake articles on the internet. The results reveal that K12 students must learn how to distinguish between what’s fictional and what is real.
