Can you tell if an online story is true?

Media literacy is more than being able to access media. It also means being able to analyze and evaluate the information you’re getting from an online story.

Test your ability to tell what’s real and what’s fake using the Animals Quiz and the News Quiz from Media Smarts.

Here are four steps you can take to help you decide if an online story is true.

These are a sample of the resources available for Media Literacy Week, October 26-30.  This year, Media Smarts together with the Canadian Teachers’ Federation has created a Teachers’ Hub, with free lesson plans and resources that focus on online verification, digital citizenship, and creating media.
