Our democracies and people’s understanding of reality are being threatened by the spread of disinformation. Additionally, the most popular false information usually attracts much more attention than real information in social media. Fake news spreads widely and quickly across the web, reaching a large audience.

SPOTit aims to help young people make informed decisions about the information they come across on social media by developing their media literacy skills through a range of innovative resources, namely:

  • The SPOTit Training Package
  •  A Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) for Combatting fake news
  • Digital Escape Rooms

The first two aim to support youth workers so that they, in turn, can help young people develop media literacy competences and critical thinking skills. The Digital Escape Rooms will give young people the chance to advance numerous competencies and skills including media literacy, critical thinking, and problem-solving, as they will use technology to solve a series of puzzles.
