The Newseum at SXSW: The Only Solution to Fake News: Education for All @ Salon FG - JW Marriott | Austin | Texas | United States

Your mother shared a fake news story. Your students cited “alternative facts.” There’s only one thing to do: teach news and media literacy education. In this session, we’ll demystify the news-gathering process. We’ll look at the effects of technology on news sharing. And we’ll teach you how to talk about fake and flawed news, so you leave ready to empower all news consumers, from students to seniors.

  • Ed Madison, assistant professor at the University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication
    University of Oregon.
  • Barbara McCormack, vice president of education at the Newseum.
  • Esther Wojcicki, founder of the Palo Alto High School Media Arts Program.
