Social Media & Media Readership

The ability to critically read the media and to understand what might be true and what fake, has become more important than ever. This is due to the vast and rapid information flow through digital platforms. Misinformation and fake news are more and more common and the media manipulation techniques are getting increasingly sophisticated. Being able to read media critically helps to indentify credible sources, recognize bias, and make informed decisions in an era where the line between fact and opinion is often blurred.

During this Workshop Week the participants will dive deep into the themes of media reading, fake news, misinformation/disinformation and responsible media behavior. In addition to these, the participants will get to explore the concept of gamification, learning how to apply game-design elements and principles to enhance engagement and understanding in media literacy. Through interactive activities and practical examples, they will discover innovative ways to use gamification to make learning about media more effective and enjoyable.

These themes will be further developed to serve as a tool and instructions at the PMP Toolkit.

How to indentify credible information sources, recognize bias, and make informed decisions?
