Fake News

Searching for information on the web, recognizing fake news and choosing reliable sources… In this workshop the participants started classes by reading a very interesting and surprising article and discussing about it. After discovering that the article they discussed about was a false article, the subject of “Fake News” was introduced. As exercises, the participants of the workshop, not only learned to recognize different types of fake news and media manipulations such as advertising, conspiracy theories or clickbait, but they could also play the role of the creator of fake news to get to know the ways and mechanics of creating them.
