Why is it crucial to teach news and media literacy in schools?
And how has the Covid-19 pandemic made this more critical?
These were the questions that we posed to a panel of experts from the world of education and news media at our recent virtual event, ‘Teaching News and Media Literacy - the why, when and how’.
We heard from Josie Verghese (assistant editor, BBC News Development and head of BBC Young Reporter), Margaret Holborn (head of secondary and higher education at the Guardian Foundation) and Fay Lant (head of school programmes, National Literacy Trust) as they shared resources and ideas around teaching news and media literacy.
Recordings from the event will shortly be available on the BlendEd website, but we thought it would be useful to do a quick roundup of five key takeaways from the day:
