This session is all about giving you practical methods to help your students sift through information online, spot what's credible, and build solid media literacy skills that they'll actually use in the 21st century. By the end of the session, participants will leave with a renewed sense of confidence and a robust toolkit to help their students thrive in the digital age, ensuring they emerge as discerning and responsible digital citizens. *This session will offer GT credit.
