About Media Literacy Week
Media Literacy Week is an annual national campaign hosted by MediaSmarts and the Canadian Teachers Federation to promote digital and media literacy, with activities and events taking place in classrooms, libraries, museums and community groups from coast to coast to coast.
Break the Fake
Media Literacy Week 2019 was better than ever! We encouraged Canadians of all ages to Break the Fake by bringing back the house hippo, and shared a suite of resources that anyone can use to learn how to check whether something is true online.
Check out our materials and use them in your classroom, office, home or community:
