Democracy Bootcamp: NCTCA 2019 presented by CIVIX
****This is an ATA sponsored event and has an independent registration at the link below**** 

Space is limited. Please click here to register by January 31.

One of the most urgent issues facing democracies today is the spread of misinformation and disinformation. The ability to discern true from false, and reliable from unreliable, is an essential skill of citizenship in the digital age. Learn the tips and tricks for fact-checking and verifying sources that you can bring back to your classroom and empower your students to be informed citizens.

In preparation for the spring provincial election, listen to experts and journalists share their insights relating to the parties and campaign strategies, and participate in small group discussions with other teachers to speak about useful tools and best practices for Student Vote.

Teachers will leave the day ready to challenge their students into thinking about politics, news consumption and participating in Student Vote Alberta 2019.

If you have any questions, please email the CIVIX team at bootcamp@civix.ca.
