How can teachers support students in recognising fake news published online and on social media? One of the main objectives of the Project “Digital Resistance” funded by the Joint Programme “Democratic and Inclusive School Culture in Operation (DISCO)” is to empower teachers in developing students’ digital skills and competences enabling them to recognise false information and fake news published on social media and online.
Project partners met in Hannover on 15-16 October to discuss and finalise a digital handbook for teachers that will be ready by the end of October and will be used in teacher training starting from November 2018 in the participating countries (Austria, Germany, Greece, Italy and Romania).
The digital handbook builds on the Council of Europe work done in the related fields, namely the Conceptual Model of Digital Citizenship Education and the Reference Framework of Competences for Democratic Culture.
