Information Saves Lives: Verifying Online Information Webinar
April 4, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
People in Canada are bombarded with information 24/7, much of which is consumed online. It is vital that the public is able to critically assess and recognize misinformation and disinformation online, and avoid online manipulation, especially today with the COVID-19 pandemic spreading worldwide. This online webinar will cover verification tips for individuals to better understand how to determine what information is real vs. fake and combat the spread of online manipulation.
It is a part of a program facilitated by Canadian INGO Journalists for Human Rights to strengthen digital and news literacy skills of people in Canada. Find more information at www.jhr.ca/truth-matters.
