Who we are
In the project “Antibodies to Misinformation: Students and Journalists Are Educated by Training” we design, develop and implement in pilot schools an experiential educational program for the media against misinformation. The main learning goal of the program is the metacognitive skill of critically dealing with information disseminated in digital media. We use climate change as an exemplary theme, around which a lot of information and misinformation is circulating and for which there is genuine interest but also real disagreements and accusations from both sides, as well as serious and difficult dilemmas. The training program is designed and implemented by the participating students themselves, members of the CyberSafety Youth Committee, in collaboration with and guidance from journalists, educators and policy makers.
The project is funded by the Cyprus University of Technology in the framework of the grants “Combating Misinformation through Media Literacy”, by the Embassy of the United States of America in the Republic of Cyprus. The grant “Combating Misinformation through Media Education” is supported, among others, by the Pedagogical Institute of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports and Youth of Cyprus, the program “HORIZON 2020 Co-Inform” (# 770302) and the Open University Of Cyprus.
