PBS Wisconsin Education Specialist, Nick Ostrem, will focus on tools, resources, and strategies to teach students how to analyze and evaluate online sources of information. Full-day training includes lateral reading, identifying bias in sources, and critically analyzing media. We will then have 3 follow-up Zoom sessions to take a deeper dive into fake news and misinformation, media bias and objectivity, and digital manipulation and photo editing.
