Real Libraries vs Fake News
SLAV’s first full day conference for the year will support teacher-librarians as they take up the challenge of providing students with the skills they need to discern real news from fake news in a world of information overload.
Dr Barbara Combes will give the keynote address entitled Fake, frivolous or phoney?. In one of two featured addresses, Misha Ketchell, managing editor of The Conversation, will present Navigating the web in 2018 on facts and journalism, and we will also be joined by Jo Teng, a lawyer with the Australian Copyright Council, for up-to-date information on recent copyright rulings that impact education.
