Open Your Eyes – Fake News for Dummies

Open Your Eyes

The project Open Your Eyes targets  adult learners and educators, in the to improve their digital skills, raising awareness of the concept of fake news and providing the needed tools to combat it.

The project intends to deliver two main outputs:

  • “Check IT Out” Database: the partners will compile a collection of scientific data, best practices and initiatives that will enable users to develop a critical approach to news consumption and trigger their critical sense towards this issue.
  • “Check IT Out” Labs: held by especially-trained adult educators and based on the previously developed database, the Labs target groups of 10+ adult learners in partner countries with the objective of developing their critical and digital skills, bringing them closer to the concept of fake news and ultimately spreading awareness about the topic within their network.
