Senior Planet: How to Spot Fake News [for ages 60+]

The topic for October 22nd is "How to Spot Fake News"
Concerned about fake news? In the digital age, anyone can publish anything on the internet. This lecture will provide a helpful explanation for the increase in the use of the term fake news, as well as give you some tools to evaluate news sources. We’ll also review popular fact-checking sites.

These instructor led lectures are designed for ages 60+ to help bridge the technology gap that so often occurs.  Due to COVID restrictions, you are able to enjoy the lectures from the comfort of your own home.  The Zoom meeting platform will be utilized to relay the content and interact with participants.
