American pupils are taught to think critically and recognize fake news. The teacher uses an on-line course with the name ‘Checking’. She shows children real news and they decide whether they are facts or fakes.

The investigations show the most news people get from social media and believe them. That made Alan Miller create a project ‘News Literacy’. The pupils say the course helped them critically consider the news in social media. Now the thousands of pupils around the USA and in 90 countries use that course.
