Educators need to learn from media, I think, that presenting 'just the facts', isn't sufficient. "But we know now that people's brains don't have an on/off switch that gets flipped by a well-made factcheck. People's beliefs are driven by a huge number of psychological and social factors, far beyond whether they follow PolitiFact on Instagram. Knowledge alone doesn't knock out beliefs held for deeper reasons — and sometimes, it entrenches them more deeply."
