Registrations for the Digital Literacy - Fake News module of the Connected Librarians course open on Friday 3 March.
Being digitally literate is an increasingly important part of allowing people to participate as informed citizens in today’s society. It encompasses a variety of knowledge, skills and behaviours, some of which need to be explicitly taught.
As digital literacy is such a large area to cover, this module will focus on just one key aspect - the ability to identify, mitigate and deal with “fake news”.
Applications close on Friday 17 March and the course will be starting on Monday 27 March.
This course is designed by New Zealand school librarians, for school librarians - those just starting out with online tools, who are ready and willing to try new things.
The course is free for SLANZA members.
Please visit the Online PD page on our SLANZA website for further information and to register.
