More about TOOL4YOUTH project
The main goal of the project „Tools4youth“ is to promote media literacy in the wider community and raise awareness about false information and how to recognize it. The digital age has made it easy for everyone to place information on the internet without going through fact-checking and other information-checking tools. This is why media literacy is a highly essential skill in the digital age. Working with youth and youth workers will disseminate this issue to a wider community.
Youth from multiple countries will have the opportunity to develop their skills of recognising fake news and not trustworthy resources, enhance media literacy skills, develop innovative ideas and improve problem-solving skills while the project activities will promote the EU funding project to the wider community. All of these objectives will be achieved by involving participants through interactive and innovative workshops, webinars, seminars and meetings.
Activities will take place in Portugal, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Turkey and Lithuania. Two LTTs will be held in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Turkey where the youth will work on developing an E – toolkit.
Media literacy is the ability to access, analyze, evaluate, and create media. It is a crucial skill in today’s world, where we are constantly bombarded with information from various sources, including social media, television, radio, and the internet. With the proliferation of fake news and misinformation, it is more important than ever to be able to critically assess the information we come across and determine its veracity.
False information can have serious consequences, from influencing public opinion and policy decisions to spreading fear and causing harm to individuals and communities. That’s why it’s important to raise awareness about the dangers of false information and how to recognize it.
So how can we spot false information? Here are a few tips:
Check the source: Is the source of the information reputable and trustworthy?
Look for supporting evidence: Is the information backed up by credible sources and evidence?
Consider the motive: Why is the information being shared? Is there a hidden agenda or bias?
Check the date: Is the information current or outdated?
Use fact-checking resources: There are numerous websites and organizations dedicated to fact-checking and debunking false information. Use these resources to verify the accuracy of the information you come across.
By practicing media literacy and being aware of the dangers of false information, we can make more informed decisions and protect ourselves and our communities from harm.
