Event Description:
This live event from Teaching Tolerance will offer practical tips for educators hoping to teach or better understand media literacy. Monita Bell and Cory Collins will address common problems in teaching/understanding media literacy—such as educators not being up to date on the current online landscape, or lack of access to technology—and suggest solutions. Solutions will include our new podcast about digital literacy, The Mind Online. They will also include lessons and resources from our Digital Literacy Framework, which includes K-12 materials that can be used with or without technology, and classroom-friendly videos.

KQED Confirmation Bias Video and Online Discussion

Event Details:
November 5th, 2018
KQED
Online
https://learn.kqed.org/topics/16

Event Description:
Have your students (6th-12th) watch the Above the Noise episode on Confirmation Bias and join the discussion with other students from across the country in KQED Learn. KQED Learn is a free, safe, online space where middle and high school students build essential skills in research, collaboration, data analysis and communication. Sign up as a teacher and register you class to join a discussion. Video description: Confirmation bias wants you to stay in your comfort zone. This cognitive bias causes us to seek out opinions we already agree with and dismiss opposing views–regardless of the facts. Confirmation bias and other cognitive biases are part of being human, but they can also make it hard to keep an open mind. How can we train our brains away from cognitive bias?
