Name: Fair News: Learning to navigate knowledge
In the current landscape, in which young people are exposed to multiplying media perspectives, the question of how knowledge is created, disseminated, and consumed is ever-more important. Young people need the ability to recognize bias and identify fair and trustworthy sources of news and information. Further, as the digital world becomes increasingly atomised, and much of social and civic life takes place online, many young people risk disconnection and isolation from the local, national, and international communities.The project aims not only to enhance understanding among high school students of the operation of fake-news, but also to work with students on a deep level in order to strengthen their understanding of how knowledge and media content is created and distributed. The project aims to help students to become more conscious readers, co-creators and co-distributors of knowledge.
To introduce students to the theory and practice of Fair News by:
- Developing a deeper understanding of how knowledge is created, co-created, distributed and amplified in an increasingly complex digital landscape;
- Improving awareness of the power of
words and images from a holistic, multidisciplinary, and long-term perspective;
- Offering a space in which students can
learn and teach, enabling them to become media literate by listening as well as speaking to them, to prioritise the needs
and voices of students;- Empowering students as digital citizens and participants in democratic life through new ways to consume, create, present and distribute their own news content;
