About the project

In the project “ANTIbodies to MISinformation” we design, develop and apply to elementary, high school and high school students a standard experiential program against misinformation. The main goal is to develop the metacognitive attitude and the ability of adolescent students to critically deal with information in digital media.
We use climate change as an exemplary case study for digital misinformation, as it is a (literally and figuratively) hot topic in which there is a lot of information and misinformation. The training program is designed and implemented by the participating students themselves, members of the CyberSafety Youth Committee in collaboration and guidance from journalists, educators and policy makers.
This project is funded through the Cyprus University of Technology under the “Combating Misinformation through Media Literacy” grants, by the Embassy of the United States of America to the Republic of Cyprus and is also supported by the Cyprus Pedagogical Institute of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sport and Youth.
