Educator speaker and author
Fake news, propaganda and “alternative facts” have never been more of a threat to democracy than now. We owe it to our students to prepare them to navigate a complicated media landscape of video, social media and websites – in other words, to become media literate. This session will review the ways in which our students can read and interpret different forms of media, and give you the tools your students need to become literate in the media of now.
This session will connect to several of the learning outcomes in the IB Diploma Language and Literature syllabus, but also be applicable English teachers of younger students.
