The EU Erasmus+ project Open Your Eyes targets adult learners and educators to improve their media and digital skills by raising awareness of the concept of fake news and providing the necessary tools to combat it.

The project delivered two main outputs:

  • “Check IT Out” Database: a collection of scientific data, best practices and initiatives that 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 targeted groups of 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.
