Exciting News: Turnitin Partners with NewsGuard to Strengthen Digital Literacy

Turnitin has partnered with NewsGuard to help students strengthen their research, writing and media literacy skills and ensure the integrity of their work. NewsGuard deploys journalism to fight false information through their browser extension and mobile apps. Their trained journalists provide independent ratings and “Nutrition Label” reviews for news and information websites that comprise over 90% of online engagement.

 

In response to COVID-19, NewsGuard is offering free access now until July 1, 2020. After July 1, Turnitin schools can continue using NewsGuard at no cost until Dec. 31, 2020, with the option to extend free access until the end of the school year in 2021.

 

COVID-19 has brought forth a greater emphasis on remote and independent learning, as well as an alarming “infodemic” of misinformation. With our NewsGuard partnership, we’re supporting the efforts of our educators to help students master an essential 21st-century skill of evaluating information critically in order to navigate an increasingly complex world.
