I first posted about Checkology over a year ago (see “Checkology” Looks Like A Good Classroom Tool To Promote News Literacy).
As I wrote then, teachers could get all the materials and videos to use for free, and they could be applied to full-class lessons. However, you would have to pay for its full Premium resources, including the ability to create a virtual classroom with student log-ins.
However, they’ve made this announcement:
Sign up today and get Premium access to the checkology® platform at no charge for use throughout the 2017-18 school year.
Seems like a pretty good deal to me.
You can read more about the site at the new article at Quartz, Schools around the world are now teaching kids to spot fake news.
Here’s a useful video from the Director of Checkology about fake news, followed by one about the site itself:
