I’m not a teacher, student or part of a school, but still want to be news-literate.

Checkology, our free e-learning platform, will help you become more news-literate

Today’s information landscape is the most complex in human history.

Truth, evidence and facts compete for attention alongside rumors, viral hoaxes, conspiracy theories and disinformation. This relentless stream of misinformation confuses and divides us, and can make us feel powerless.

But we all can learn to identify misinformation.

News literacy — the ability to determine the credibility of news and other content — is the solution, one that’s urgently needed.

“One of the most important educational tools for our time.”

Mark Sullivan and Tim Bajarin

“I feel better informed about the happenings of the world and am prepared to become a voter.”

Daniela Rangel, ninth-grade student, Daniel Pearl Magnet High School, Van Nuys, California

“It’s empowered me to be a better teacher of the material.”

Kelly Melendez Loaiza, science teacher, Mansfield High School, Mansfield, Massachusetts

A Future Founded on Facts

The News Literacy Project, a nonpartisan national education nonprofit, provides programs and resources for educators and the public to teach, learn and share the abilities needed to be smart, active consumers of news and information and equal and engaged participants in a democracy.

Our vision: News literacy is embedded in the American education experience, and people of all ages and backgrounds know how to identify credible news and other information, empowering them to have an equal opportunity to participate in the civic life of their communities and the country.
