Fighting fake news: using NewsGuard as a free research aid and news literacy tool

Thursday, February 14, 2019

Sponsored by- North Dakota State Library The proliferation of fake news has clouded the digital landscape and made news literacy an essential skill for students and adults alike. NewsGuard, a company founded by a team of veteran journalists, has created a free tool to help people better navigate search results and social media feeds. In this webinar, NewsGuard will demonstrate how libraries have been using NewsGuard's browser extension to help their patrons surf the internet and conduct research with more knowledge of the credibility and transparency of websites producing their news.
