NLP leading the way in teaching news literacy in the U.S.

The News Literacy Project is leading the way in creating a news-literate public by giving American youth the tips, tools and resources they need to sort fact from fiction, Aine Kerr wrote for Independent Business and Technology in Ireland.

“The project's motto is simple: when you're informed, you're empowered. Via a series of free lessons, students learn the difference between news and branded content, how to differentiate trending rumours from reported facts, what questions to ask about the Who, What, Where, When, Why and How, and how to go about detecting biases,” Kerr, co-founder and COO of NevaLabs, wrote.
