Fake News is a Real Problem. Here’s How Students Can Solve It 

Fake News is a Real Problem. Here’s How Students Can Solve It  | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

I used to teach a class called photojournalism. I usually referred to it as “digital journalism,” because people assumed we were a photography class. Students created videos, podcasts, documentaries, and blogs with the goal of sharing their work with an authentic audience. On the surface, this might not seem all that practical. After all, newspapers are slashing their budgets and laying off staff. Why teach an elective class in a subject that doesn’t connect to a decent job market?

I find it challenging to work out how to differentiate (or whether I am differentiating) lessons in secondary school classes where everything is driven by the needs of an examination system. This idea, that there are multiple incarnations of differentiation, I find quite helpful.

Who are Generation Z? The latest data on today's teens

Who are Generation Z? The latest data on today's teens | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Sexually fluid, socially anxious, politically engaged, connected but lonely: what do we know about modern teens?


Today's youngest generation with a label, born after 2000, are connected yet isolated, savvy but anxious, indulged yet stressed. They have grown up with social media, a constant proliferation of information on a fully mobile internet, the rise of Islamic State and other forms of terrorism. As these teenagers approach adulthood, against the political backdrop of Brexit and President Trump, how will they shape the future?
