Checkology is an online program of the News Literacy Project.
Here’s how they describe it:
NLP’s checkology™ virtual classroom is a place where students discover how to navigate today’s challenging information landscape by using the core skills and concepts of news literacy.
The virtual classroom brings this vital skill set to life through a series of engaging digital experiences that use real-world examples of news and information and guided instruction from journalists and other experts.
You can sign-up for it free to project on a screen and use it as a whole-class exercise, which seems very doable, especially if you have small whiteboards that students can use or, in a higher-tech setting, “clickers.” The program basically a combination of short video clips with interactive questions. You can pay if you want to create a virtual classroom, though the site doesn’t say how much that premium addition would cost.
I’m adding it to The Best Tools To Help Develop Global Media Literacy.
