Can an enquiry-based learning approach shield students from the effects of fake news and false information? On 27-28 June 2019, project partners of “Digital Resistance” met in Athens to assess the progress of activities and share their results.
The project funded by the Joint Programme “Democratic and Inclusive School Culture in Operation (DISCO)” aims to empower teachers with an enquiry-based learning strategy for the development of students’ competences and skills to critically assess online information.
The main output of the project is a handbook for teachers that will be made available in English and in the languages of the participating countries at the end of the project implementation period in November 2019.
The project saw the participation of organisations from different countries namely, 1st EPAL Korydallou/Athens – Public VET school, Buzau County School Inspectorate, Leibniz University of Hannover, University of Pavia, University of Vienna and led to significant results.
In Austria, Germany and Greece, students’ assignments were produced using the inquiry-based learning approach and included presentations, caricatures, online games, short workshops, podcasts and blog entries.
In Italy, project partners involved an NGO that organised focused activities with teachers and students that led to the development of an assessment methodology for the process.
In Romania, the handbook for teachers and the topic of fake news itself will be integrated into the curriculum for the Buzau country.
