OpenAthens Partners With News Platform for Teaching Media Literacy

OpenAthens joined forces with Ground News—a news platform featuring 50,000 global media sources, from across the political spectrum, that aims to foster media literacy—to give students at Florida State College–Jacksonville access to Ground News using sign-on credentials from other college services via OpenAthens.

“With just a click or swipe students can compare related articles to see what details are being emphasized, exaggerated or left out entirely,” the press release notes. “Stories on Ground News are accompanied by bias, factuality and ownership ratings derived from independent news monitoring organizations. Knowing the bias of a media outlet can help students understand how and why a story is being framed a certain way.” 

For more information, read the press release.
