MEDIA LITERACY IN THE DISINFORMATION AGE – Webinar
May 20, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Access to accurate information is an integral component of free expression and essential to public health and civic engagement, especially during a pandemic rife with both misinformation and disinformation. Amid the deluge of incorrect and misleading content in the health and political contexts, media literacy has become a chillingly vital prerequisite to empower online users in the fight against disinformation.
During this 90-minute training, participants will learn how to better identify manipulated content—about the pandemic and in the context of the upcoming 2020 election—and will leave equipped with PEN America’s Media Literacy Toolkit to promote healthier digital practices.
