University of Pittsburgh Disinformation Lab Presents: #FakeNews: Making Sense of Digital Media in the Era of Mis/Disinformation and Clickbait

April 23 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Adults attending a computer class working on an exercise.

Fake news is nothing new, but it feels more prevalent these days. Widespread use of everyday technologies have allowed low quality information to spread with ease. Misleading or outright false information can reach more people more quickly thanks to social media. Join Dr. Jessica Ghilani as she examines the historical framework for understanding fake news, discusses how we got to this point, and offers tips on how to develop digital media literacy skills that guard against fake news. Recommended for adults.
