This book was produced for the Co-Developing a New Approach to Media Literacy in the Attention Economy research project. This project is part of the Affiliated Schools Research program, in which researchers from the University of Canberra collaborate with ACT schools. The book presents version 1.0 of educational resources created to develop fact-checking best practice in children aged 9–11. It can be used by teachers and teacher-librarians in schools, by parents who want to discuss information literacy with their children, or by children on their own.
