TechTeamMA Twitter Chat: News Literacy

On January 12th, the LHS Help Desk Students participated in the Twitter chat.  The topic was news literacy and Lynnfield students along with students from  Shrewsbury High School, Bishop Feehan High School, Burlington High School, Hamilton Wenham Regional High School, and Acera School Tech Team discussed the importance of news literacy. Students discussed  essential skills for navigating news sources. They also talked about the struggles relating to identifying bias in news sources. Many students voiced concern about news sources from social media and their credibility.  Joe Fabrizio’s hope is that “New ways of interpreting news will be incorporated into our everyday curriculum at LHS.”
