With the mass amount of information online, it’s no surprise how challenging it can be to spot fake news. How can you tell when a website is reporting accurate information, or spinning a story to take advantage of the readers?

Fake news can result in many consequences in politics, scams, and the community in general. Schools are working to proactively fight against these problems by offering digital literacy courses. Unfortunately, the older generations tend to be at higher risk of falling victim to the false messages found online.

Learning How to Identify Fake News
NPR has launched a radio program with the goal of supporting older adults with education about how to identify fake news. All Things Considered is a great resource to teach people of all ages about safety online and where accurate information can be accessed.

The radio program shares details about how to recognize and validate information. Whether people are reading online or listening through videos, podcasts, or radio, every person needs to be aware of the source of information. The truth is that fake news is much more insidious than many people realize, which is why initiatives are in place to provide tools to the people who are most vulnerable to misinformation.

Digital Literacy is Essential in This Political Climate
With all of the Super Tuesday events this week and the upcoming presidential election later this year, it is more important than ever to help family and friends identify the right sources of online information. According to the NPR host, Mary Louise Kelly, it is suspected that the presidential election is likely being impacted by Russia again. Their intent is to spread misinformation with the purpose of influencing voters.
