Try the Fact Check Explorer

Fact Check Explorer is a free tool from Google that anyone can use to explore the veracity of claims made on the Internet. As you can see in my brief video embedded below, on Fact Check Explorer you can enter a topic or name then see a list of articles accompanied by notations about the accuracy of the claims in those articles. You can click through to the source of each article and the fact checker. 

Watch this short video that I made for an overview of how to use Google’s Fact Check Explorer. 


Applications for Education

It should be noted that Fact Check Explorer isn’t an infallible tool. That said, it could be a good tool to use to help students get a better understanding of the context around claims that they may have heard from other people and or read on the Internet.
