Teacher Tip Tuesday: Avoiding Data and Science Misinformation in Today's Messy Media Landscape (Open to All)
This panel presentation and discussion will explore the role media play in building scientific and mathematical understanding and the impact misinformation is having on how young people navigate their roles as both students and citizens. The discussants will consider how best to evaluate the data and conclusions shared via mainstream and social media, especially in relation to the pandemic, the environment, the economy, and other current issues. The session is designed to empower educators through both resources and techniques to deploy data literacy principles and media analysis.
This event is a collaboration among the National Science Teaching Association, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, Education Development Center, and the National Association for Media Literacy Education.
- Educators gain new understanding of how media are impacting their students’ scientific reasoning and mathematical thinking
- Educators have access to useful resources to integrate media literacy practices into their current instruction

We are incredibly resilient, and the current context reminds us that we are preparing learners for an unpredictable world requiring informed decision making, creative problem solving, and adaptability. This session continues the conversation on resiliency, creativity, and adaptation.</p>
