Apple is teaming up with media literacy programs across the United States and Europe that encourage critical thinking and empower students to be better informed.
Apple is supporting the News Literacy Project (NLP) and Common Sense in the U.S., and Osservatorio Permanente Giovani-Editori in Italy.
News literacy is vital to sustaining a free press and thriving democracy, and we are proud to be collaborating with organizations on the front lines of this effort. We’ve been impressed by the important work being done by the News Literacy Project, Common Sense and Osservatorio, empowering young people to be active and engaged citizens.Tim Cook, CEO of Apple
Since NLP released its platform in May 2016, over 17, 800 educators in all 50 states in the U.S. have registered to use it, with over 124,000 students benefiting from its lessons. The Common Sense Digital Citizenship Curriculum is taught in more than half the schools in the United States, by more than 700,000 educators.
And for over 18 years, Osservatorio’s mission has been to help today’s young people become citizens of tomorrow, participate more in our democracy and develop critical thinking that sets them free.
