As the Coronavirus spreads, so does the news about it. Some stories are accurate. Some stories are not. And some stories are full of half-truths. All designed to get people to read and for the clicks to come. Today's guest, Darren Hudgins is co-author of Fact VS Fiction: Teaching Critical Thinking In The Age of Fake News (ISTE 2018). He helps us understand triggers, news literacy, and how we can help our students effectively analyze news in a world where health issues and news tend to go viral.
