Towards a more responsible media literacy Project

“Fake news make fake views”

Six schools from Austria, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Sweden and Slovenia have joined together with the aim to examine phenomenon of fake news and include it in media literacy and civic education activities. Fake news is becoming a fashionable term to depict misleading information, deliberately spread over social networks. The teenagers, internet natives, accept internet as the predominantly reality but are often deceived and used by online predators, what often leads to ignite populist ideas. Parents often lack experience and knowledge, schools curricula are falling behind since the development is rapid.
