De Facto Project

Misinformation and disinformation have recently become a focus of public attention because of their influence on politics and the news cycle. De Facto explores the negative impact of misinformation and disinformation once they leave the news cycle and become part of the many resources available on the internet to learners of all ages and in various learning contexts. The impact on education. The impact on us. http://defacto.space/

TLM will issue your centre with the tools to complete the case study before attending the project meeting in March. Centres will be given access to an activity set to discuss and challenge the learners knowledge of fake news.

Centres will need to send a representative to your chosen destination to take part in a review of the case study conducted within your centre. Assessors will get to discuss their case study data with other assessors from around Europe.

Enrich your curriculum, broaden assessors teaching practices and develop learners knowledge with tools and information gathered from the Defacto Project. This will give learners the opportunity to develop their confidence identifying misinformation and disinformation, which is now becoming a daily occurrence within the media and social networking.

 

Only UK centres can apply to send assessors to these project meetings.
