A recent study from Common Sense Media found that students are turning away from traditional media organizations and getting current events information from social media and YouTube. It was estimated that more than half of teens get their news at least a few times a week from social media platforms. This session will illustrate, explain, and share strategies to help educators understand how to reach today’s student in the ways they gather information, and ways to help students understand and distinguish media bias vs. reputable sources.
