Teaching people how to fact check, search the internet, and understanding social media is difficult. Games are one of many educational tools made to help with this, but do they work? 

In this livestream, public scholar and PhD candidate Scott DeJong will be playing and analyzing media literacy boardgames to see how they play, what they teach, and discuss what they are doing right and (maybe) what they are doing wrong. 

How can you participate? Join us in person or online by registering for the Zoom Meeting or by watching live on YouTube.
