Given the continuous change of media landscape, both technology and content-wise, this project aims to provide workshops reaching a minimum of 500 high school students from the rural areas of Teleorman, Ialomita and Tulcea counties to improve the students’ critical thinking and ability to analyze various media.  Educating students on how to access, evaluate, identify trustworthy information resources, and create media content contributes to a better-informed and more involved citizenry, as well as helps inoculate them against propaganda and manipulation by information aggression.

The workshops should be designed to include: discussions on topics such as information resources, various types of news, media formats, and communication technologies; presentations on criteria used to evaluate information (Currency, Relevance, Authority, Accuracy, Purpose); hands-on exercises to identify credible information, to spot fake news or propaganda, and to conduct fact checking; debates on the impact of disinformation in the daily life; disinformation vs. misinformation; media content production and social media sharing; ethics/intellectual property elements.
