New parliamentary commission on fake news

« Back

A new report from the National Literacy Trust has stressed that children and young people in England do not have the critical literacy skills they need to identify fake news. To delve deeper into the issue, the National Literacy Trust has launched a new parliamentary commission on fake news and the teaching of critical literacy skills in schools and has produced surveys for primary and secondary school pupils to find out what children know about fake news and to measure their ability to spot false information online.

A survey for teachers has also been launched to gather information on what support teachers need around the teaching of critical literacy skills and some new teaching resources have been published.
