6th Annual NJ GAFE Summit – Fake News

July 23, 2017 Alec

Next week, I’ll be attending the 6th annual New Jersey GAFE summit. In addition to facilitating a few workshops, I’m also very honoured to have been invited to deliver the opening keynote at the event. My presentation, titled Developing critical literacies: What students need to know in a “fake news” world, addresses what I see as one of the key challenges facing educators today: preparing students to survive and thrive in our post-truth reality.

In anticipation of this event, I’ve compiled a small collection of key readings, viewings, and other resources on the Padlet found below.

Made with Padlet

I’d love for you to take some time to explore the information collected on the Padlet and then to think about how you might start to address the issue of fake news in your own school context. Then, please take a few moments to respond, by commenting on this post OR by submitting your own video response to the Flipgrid below. Even if you won’t be attending the New Jersey summit, I’d still love to hear your thoughts on this important issue in education!
