teaching children to spot misinformation

No matter how you voted this election, we can all agree that there is a lot of misinformation circulating about.  Therefore, how can you teach your children to spot misinformation?  Check out the tips from huffington post:
  • start early - because children have access to smart phones, tablets + televisions, teach them media literacy early
  • explain the difference between reality + fantasy
  • tell them to stop + think before they click + share
  • ignore shocking headlines because they are most likely misleading
  • consume media with them
  • highlight quality sources of information
  • foster critical conversations
  • ask questions about new articles - the key is to always try to make media an active pastime
  • model media literacy
  • use resources like "stop media monsters" + raising digital natives
“There’s simply too much content out there for us to fact-check everything we see. It’s a lot easier, and maybe more effective, to teach kids where + how to seek out quality, factual sources of information.”
