    Fake news is so rampant, so how do we make sure the information we consume and share is legitimate?

    Might some sort of media literacy training be the answer?

    Saffron Howden is a journalist and author of “Kid Reporter, The secret to breaking news” – a hand book for kids to learn about how journalism works – and much more.
