In the digital era, we are exposed to huge amounts of information. As more of what we see is AI generated, and less of what we read is from trustworthy sources, we need to ask more questions. Is this real? Why do we believe fake news? How can we protect ourselves from misinformation? 

Join this webinar for Academic English teachers to learn how to use critical thinking skills such as evaluating and verifying information. See how Reading Explorer presents important academic and life skills through engaging and trending content that will help our students to succeed by challenging what they read and helping them make considered decisions.
