More about the workshop

The workshop contained a presentation about the project itself where the themes and objectives of the project mentioned before were explained. The moderator also talked about the activities that have already been accomplished as well as the future ones the project has in store for young people that are willing to travel for free and learn new things.

 

The participants had a brainstorming session about fake news, their experiences about the topic, how fake news affected the society, what negative side effects have fake news brought upon the usage of social media as a tool for learning and they presented their thoughts as well as shared some stories of their own cases of being affected by fake news. The most important thing they talked about was how to come up with a strategy of recognizing fake news, which tools to use and how to check the sources.
