Get ready to learn how to go forward knowing reality from fiction, or the closest we can get to it :0
This workshop is designed to encourage and practice skills of critical thinking and effective researching to help young people and families to be made more aware of biases from certain sources (as well as our own) and how to spot misleading graphs and data.
Why does this matter?
In a world of seemingly free news sources available online and on every social network platform, it is becoming increasingly hard to determine fact from fiction. At first glance a Youtube video explaining the conspiracies of a flat earth may look just as credible as a scientist explaining the impossibility of it.
Manipulation of the audiences senses, emotions, and fears have been very successful tactics to prevent the spread of truth, and encouraging the spread of lies. This workshop is about teaching ways to spot this and successfully navigate the news and media.
