This TED Talk lesson is intended to be used with Markham Nolan's TED Talk, "How to Separate Fact from Fiction Online."
This TED lesson is PERFECT for a Current Events or Journalism course, most Social Studies, U.S. History, and English courses.
By the end of this talk, there will be 864 more hours of video on YouTube and 2.5 million more photos on Facebook and Instagram. So how do we sort through the deluge? At the TEDSalon in London, Markham Nolan shares the investigative techniques he and his team use to verify information in real-time, to let you know if that Statue of Liberty image has been doctored or if that video leaked from Syria is legitimate.
