Dr Richard Langley, formerly EA’s Video Editor, and I were asked by the University of Birmingham to explain in 90 seconds how to combat “fake news” with media literacy.

This video is part of the Higher Education Futures Institute’s mini-course on the use of video and electronic media so teachers and students can be “media literate”.

*How can we empower ourselves to navigate between valuable information, propaganda, and “fake news”?

*How can we communicate and engage in dialogue via electronic media through videos, podcasts and articles?

*How can we establish networks to continue this academic and professional dialogue beyond the classroom?

*How can we connect our media literacy to a productive activism?
