Fake news is everywhere and its ability to reach consumers is as easy as ever. How can you be a smart consumer of information in todays day and age? This seminar will explore the misuse of data and how your source of information can have an impact on how you interpret news. We will geo-fence the school and look at what pops up on our phones and how to interpret it. Youll never think the same way about information again.

Special Guest: Chris Wilson, Partner at Wilson Research Strategies. Wilson worked on Senator Ted Cruzs 2017 Presidential Campaign.
