Open Your Eyes: Fake news for Dummies
Years (start – end): 20018 – 2020
The Open Your Eyes project targets specifically adult learners and educators and seeks to improve their digital skills by providing them with tools to identify fake news and fight the spread of disinformation online.
Two main results:
- “Check IT Out” Database: collection of best practices and initiatives that will enables users to develop a critical approach to news consumption and hopefully trigger their critical sense towards this issue. The database will allow future users to design individual strategies to confront disinformation based on what worked best in other countries.
- “Check IT Out” Labs: held by especially-trained adult educators and based on the previously developed database, the Labs target groups of adult learners in partner countries with the objective of developing their critical and digital skills, bringing them closer to the concept of fake news and ultimately spreading awareness about the topic within their network.
