The value here in this module is probably one of those things you can not put a price tag on. This information is invaluable to our students and their families and by way of extension to society as a whole.

The 'Extensions' alone are worthy of an educator's consideration.

"Students write a letter to a state or federal representative to ask for an added regulation.
Students examine YouTube policies to see how Deepfakes might be flagged or monitored.
Students find their own example of a harmful hoax or deepfake video.
(Warning: deepfakes started in the pornography industry).
Guide students to YouTube and/or a site that flags fake content like Snopes."
