easily identify misinformation
Checkology is a browser-based platform designed for students in grades 6-12.
Young people are dealing with the most complex information landscape in human history — one in which truth, evidence and facts compete for attention with falsehoods, conspiracy theories and misinformation.
Education is the most effective approach to meeting this challenge. The Checkology virtual classroom, from the News Literacy Project, provides that education.
