Popping the Fake News Bubble Workshop with Frank W. Baker

Do you have an effective lesson or strategy for teaching students about fake news, media literacy, or filter bubbles? If you do, you are invited to share at the OELMA and CMCIG of ALAO one-day fake news and media literacy event.

This poster session will last from about 30 to 45 minutes. Each presenter will have a table space to set up a poster to share their teaching ideas. Presenters may bring a laptop or tablet to share digital information. Attendees will have a chance to stroll through the room visiting the various stations during this time. Poster sessions are a quick simple way to share and gather information. Experienced and first time presenters are welcome!
