In the frame of the project “Mobile Journalism – From Corners to Cities” supported by the American embassy, Beyond Barriers have held local workshops to inform young people about media literacy.
The project offers a combination of creative activities on media literacy that promotes the competences of young participants in active citizenship and digital citizenship, using social media tools to address and report issues in local communities.
Through the use of interactive digital tools such as kahoot and mentimeter, participants learned about different media literacy concepts, massmedia, fake news and tools to debunk fake news. The last part of the activity was dedicated learning new tools how to debunk fake news such as fact check explorer, google images, rev eye and google lens.
