National NewsLitCamp®: Trust and Credibility (News Literacy Project)
The decline of the public’s trust in news media and major institutions has had a dramatic impact on civic life. As misinformation continues to spread online, and partisan divides in media trust widen, how we decide who to put our trust in and what to believe is critical to a functioning democracy. In a complex digital landscape where anyone can be an “expert,” the ability to identify signs of credibility is a vital skill. This special NewsLitCamp is a unique, virtual event designed to help educators teach students to evaluate news and information with a skeptical — not cynical — eye. This immersive day of professional learning will zero in on what it means for news to inform us credibly, how persuasion can and should be credible, and what it means for a source to be trustworthy.
