Fact-Checking Sites for Students | Tech & Learning

Fact-Checking Sites for Students | Tech & Learning | Capstone: An ESRM Coda | Scoop.it
One of the biggest challenges facing teachers as they head back to school in the ‘new normal’ of remote learning environments is trying to make sure that students are using research sources that are safe and unbiased. 

These fact-checking sites for students and other online resources (in alphabetical order) specialize in debunking claims and providing objective, researched analysis.

Fox news removes manipulated images from coverage Seattle protests

Fox News on Friday removed manipulated images that had appeared on its website as part of the outlet’s coverage of protests over the killing of George Floyd, which has occasioned peaceful assemblies in cities across the country and, in Seattle, given rise to an unusual experiment in self-government.

The misleading material ran alongside stories about a small expanse of city blocks in Seattle that activists have claimed as the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone. 

The police-free environment has become an object of scorn for right-wing activists and President Trump. As protesters occupied a six-block area surrounding an abandoned police precinct — and as Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan (D) promised to protect their First Amendment rights — Trump this week labeled them “domestic terrorists” and pledged to “take back” the city if state and local officials didn’t.

Photos: This Is What Educators’ COVID-19 ‘Classrooms’ Look Like | EdSurge News | Capstone: An ESRM Coda | Scoop.it
At first the closures seemed short-term, maybe a few weeks at most. Many teachers posted up at their kitchen tables or logged on from their couches—a temporary setup to get by until schools reopened and regular classes resumed.

But day after day, it became clearer that there would be no swift return to normal. So teachers settled in—or at least tried—to their newly-virtual classrooms and made their home arrangements more manageable for the longer term.

Drs. Fauci and Birx could storm out and publicly speak their minds, but then they'd lose any influence they have on President Trump.
PIRatE Labs insight:
This is not that uncommon of a question. In your careers, you may well face such a decision, although hopefully one with less stakes than these two professionals face.
