Break the Fake

How To Tell What’s True Online
Wednesday April 29 @ 9:30 AM
Interactive Presentation and Q&A Session
Guest Presenter: Marc Alexandre Ladouceur from MediaSmarts
Running Time: 90 minutes
Ages: 11+

In today’s digital world, critical thinking is more important than ever! In this 90-minute presentation, Marc Alexandre will teach students how to tell what’s true and what’s false online. Students (and educators!) will learn what to look for, and practice four quick, fact-checking techniques they can use every day. By the time they leave this presentation, students will be able to confirm whether online information is reliable - and debunk it if it’s not. For educators, Break the Fake includes lots of teacher resources so you can carry this discussion back into the classroom!

The Scene is delighted to be partnering with MediaSmarts to bring this important presentation to students and educators in Saskatoon!
