Dealing with the current saturation of Coronavirus news and its daily changing nature can be hard for both parents and kids. Of course, it has never been more important to get that news from trustworthy sources and for students to use the information literacy and media literacy skills that they have learnt at school.
We highly recommend Dr Norman Swan’s Coronacast Podcast. This is a podcast that helps to answer your questions about coronavirus, where he breaks down the latest news and research to help you understand how the world is living through a pandemic.
We also recommend Commonsense Media as a source of helpful information about how to help kids deal with disturbing news.
