Empowering your students to become critical consumers of the news

24-Jan-2019
The Bett Arena
21 Century Skills
More than ever, it is vital that students of all ages are not just informed about the wider world around them but are able to distinguish fact from opinion and discriminate between facts and disinformation. In this session Discovery Education, in partnership with ITN Productions and the Institute for Strategic Dialogue, will discuss the importance of incorporating the news into your classroom as a tool to build literacy skills, engage students in thinking critically about the information they consume in the media, and develop them as empowered citizens in the 21st century. We will showcase a variety of tools to engage students in analysis and discussion, ensure that they are safe online and create an environment in which to discuss stories which may be difficult or unsettling. Hosted by Discovery Education, ITN Productions & The Institute for Strategic Dialogue
