St Pats students take centre stage for fake news discussion

 

Students from St Patrick's College Dundas have lent their voice to a special segment about misinformation, fake news and media literacy on the ABC's news and current affairs panel show The Drum.


The students, who were finalists in the 2020 Front Page school newspaper competition, were asked to detail how they consume news and the skills they use to determine whether certain information is legitimate.

The panel considered whether media literacy training could be the answer and spoke with Saffron Howden, author of 'Kid Reporter: The Secret to Breaking News'.
