Fake IT – Spot the fake news 2

Debrief the activity by asking the participants how they chose the false facts about the other partici- pants; talk about ways in which they could have investigated if the facts provided were true or false. Count how many false facts were correctly identified by the participants. Conclude with the main idea that information should be checked and evaluated always, and critically analyzed, and never accepted as it comes, as it is provided. Also, make participants aware that when one decides what is true or false without checking or critically analyzing the information, one could be the “victim” of his/ her own beliefs, values, stereotypes, etc. and biased in getting the information.

Also, discuss with the participants about how fake/false information could affect our lives. Ask them to give concrete examples.
