The Digital Literacy Programme of Extremadura (Spain) works for the digital, social and labour inlcusion of individuals, specially those in risk of exclusion, youth and unemployees. The project is funded by the regional government and managed by AUPEX, the regional Folk-high-shcool association.
The Digital Literacy Programme develops a variety of training actions, designed to improve digital competence, employability and soft skills, in over 75 digital competence centers across Extremadura.
The discussion/debate "Don't be fooled!" starts with a form where users are asked about the reliability of -fake- job offers, confusing ads/headlines and controversial information.
Once the form is completed, users receive a feedback with tips, advice, and reflections on how to proceed when they get any information. After that, a discussion/debate was run by our eFacilitators and supported by a presentation, where users could understand concepts such as postruth, disinformation, media and information literacy, critical thinking... and the roll of active citizenship in promoting media literacy.
The action is completed with a Webinar about disinformation and fake news with Clara Jiménez, manager of the main project fighting agains disinformation in Spain -maldita.es-. Over 70 digital competence centres will participate in the webinar. E-Facilitators and users will have the chance to ask question via Twitter with the hashtags #EncuentrosTIC and #AllDigitalWeek #MediaLiteracyWeek
