NLP AR FY21 FINAL - Flipbook - Page 10
Resources for Everyone
NLP embarked on an entirely new line of work — the development and launch of a
suite of free resources designed for use outside of the classroom setting by people of
all ages. We also increased our efforts to combat misinformation on a national scale.
Metrics are for July 1, 2020 - June 30, 2021.
Customized for the public, this version of
Checkology provides a comprehensive
news literacy program at no cost. It includes
foundational lessons, supplemental practice
opportunities and fact-checking tools for
reverse image searches, geolocation and more.
Modeled on The Sift newsletter for
educators, Get Smart About News is
designed for everyone. It explores timely
examples of misinformation, addresses
media and press freedom topics and
discusses social media trends and issues.
Annual Report FY21
Our free mobile app, Informable, helps
people of all ages practice four distinct
news literacy skills using real-world
examples in a game-like format.
In September 2020, NLP launched its
podcast Is that a fact? Hosted by Darragh
Worland, NLP’s vice president of creative
services and a former journalist, the
inaugural 10-episode season featured
conversations with leading American
thinkers, journalists, foreign policy experts,
psychologists and authors. It explored how
access to reliable information — a core
element of American democracy — became
threatened and how our democracy can
survive the impact of misinformation.
