NO ALTERNATIVE FACTS – Virtual Conference: Wednesday 2nd December 15.00 – 18.00 CET
Tackling Intentional Misinformation in Digital Technologies through the development of Critical Thinking Skills and Media Literacy.
Young people today are growing up in a globalised world where they are processing information from a wide variety of sources; where ‘Fake News’ is big news and where it’s difficult to tell what is real or deliberately made up to misinform!
We all need critical thinking skills to navigate potential pitfalls when consuming news or searching for information, particularly when using online sources and social media. Media literacy is also crucial for sustaining democracy by knowing which information sources to trust and which media are trustworthy.
