In this workshop, participants will leave with an understanding of the many ways the term “fake news” is used these days and the motivation behind each.

They will discuss the dangers of misinformation and its effect on a democracy, plus analyze news for accuracy.

They will learn strategies and gain tools to utilize in their community for discussing media literacy in a “posttruth” world.

The interactive workshop is the fourth one in the series of workshops on How to Recognize and Stop Fake News created by Newseum. In Slovenia it is carried out in partnership with Zavod Časoris.
