Teen Fact-Checking Network; Education PodsPlay
When it comes to identifying fake news online, there's evidence that high school students have trouble distinguishing fact from fiction. That's where the Mediawise Teen Fact-Checking Network comes in. We talk to a teen fact-checker and TFCN head Alexa Volland about the work they're doing. Also, a teacher in Houston joins us to discuss her Facebook group, QuaranTEACH Houston. More than 5,600 parents are using it to organize pandemic pods because of the pandemic. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's Aug. 11, 2020, full broadcast. You can find more at hereandnow.org — and follow us on Twitter, Instagram or join the conversation on Facebook.
