      Fake News Survival Guide - Sorting Fact from Fiction in the Digital World

      “Fake News Survival Guide - Sorting Fact from Fiction in the Digital World” is a public community education program sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Kitsap focusing on detecting “fake news.” The guest speaker will be Di Zhang, an Adult Services Librarian at the Seattle Public Library, who will teach us how to recognize “fake news.” In response to confusion around misinformation in the 2016 presidential election, Mr. Zhang created the “Fake News Survival Guide,” currently taught as a computer class at the Seattle library. He speaks throughout Washington state, and partners with libraries, colleges, museums, and K-12 educators to develop resources and strategies for teaching media literacy and combating “fake news.” While the most commonly shared misinformation is political, Mr. Zhang’s classes and presentations are nonpartisan. He will be providing a limited number of copies of his learner’s packet to attendees.
