Open Your Eyes: Fake news for dummies
KA2 Cooperation for innovation and exchange of good practices
Nikanor key role
The “Open Your Eyes” project addresses directly a lack of critical thinking skills found in society to read, understand, contrast and evaluate the information as well as the ability to analyse the way you think and present evidence for your ideas, rather than simply accepting personal reasoning as sufficient proof.
The project supports improving digital literacy of adult learners which will be implemented through exploration of news feeds and building up digital source criticism, i.e. the skills of adults/adult learners of identifying the values and principles underlying media texts and discriminating objective from subjective information.
- “Check IT Out” Database: after thorough comparative research, the partners compiled a collection of best practices and initiatives that enables users to develop a critical approach to news consumption and hopefully trigger their critical sense towards this issue.
- “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.
