Media Literacy Week

7 October 2019 @ 8:00 AM - 11 October 2019 @ 5:00 PM

October 7 to 11, 2019

Media Literacy Week is an annual national campaign hosted by MediaSmarts and the Canadian Teachers Federation to promote digital and media literacy, with activities and events taking place in classrooms, libraries, museums and community groups from coast to coast to coast.

It can be tough to tell what’s true and what’s “fake news” just by looking at a headline. But it’s easy to do a quick check and get the real facts when something doesn’t look right online. We want you to help us Break the Fake by stopping the spread of false info and getting Canadians to check before sharing!  In time for Media Literacy Week, we have new Break the Fake resources for you to use including: a free workshop anyone can use to host an event, fact-checking tip sheetslesson plans and other resources for educators and more!

Join us for Media Literacy Week October 7-11, 2019 and help stop the spread of fake info online.
