We are bombarded everyday by information, a lot of which is false or misleading – this is often called an ‘infodemic’.
We require skills to work out if what we are reading or hearing is true or false. This means taking the time to find reliable and accurate information, question it and ask yourself ‘what can I do?’
We are delighted to launch a new tutor guide at this webinar, with our partners ’80:20 Educating and Acting for a Better World’.
‘Facts Matter’ is an introductory guide for adult literacy and adult education practitioners who wish to build their students’ knowledge, understanding, skills and confidence in critical thinking, media and digital literacy.
Join us at 1.00 pm on Tuesday 28 September to hear from:
• Catherine Devlin, Adult Literacy Ambassador, about why and what facts matter.
• Joan Fitzpatrick, Adult Literacy practitioner from Kildare and Wicklow Education and Training Board, about where and when you check facts.
• Orla Ryan from the journal.ie on how we can fight back against misinformation.
Once you register at the link below you will then receive an email from Zoom with a link to join the webinar on 28 September.
