Strategic Partnership on tackling disinformation and fake news

Italy for EU, an international VET institution, based in Rome, is looking for partners for a new Strategic Partnership project.

The project represents a transnational initiative that will involve 5 European countries with the aim of creating digital tools that revolutionize the modern school methodology in the near future among secondary schools from all over Europe.

The goal of these tools is to create a digital gallery of resources that both teachers and students can draw on to combat the phenomenon of disinformation and fake news. The projects objectives are to inform students and teachers about the challenges of a proper use of digital devices and providing guidelines to support the responsible use of the Internet by young people.

With this project we want to make schools the protagonists of a digital revolution among young people, thanks to the creation of digital tools that make the use of the internet more aware, which, on the one hand, leads teachers to use a new methodology, multimedial and interactive and that on the other hand represents a point of reference for young Europeans in their approach to digital and Internet.

Starting from Italy but also throughout Europe, this year characterized by the spread of Covid-19 has, in fact, imposed a massive use of digital tools, starting with schools with distance learning: faced with these new challenges, young people not only started to get used to handling the web on a daily basis, but also they came into contact with hundreds of news information about the virus, some of which were false, without having the necessary tools to distinguish reality from fiction. We believe that now more than ever it is necessary to contribute to improving the approach of young people to digital, giving them the tools for a conscious use of the Internet, a civic education 2.0 that helps them filter online content and become future adults.

If you want to be our partners please contact us at specifying “Strategic Partnership Project" and your OID Number in the subject and providing a brief description of your activities related with Digitalization, School Education and fake news. At the same time we are interested in taking part at new relevant projects in a mutual European cooperation, so please do not hesitate to contact us for further discussion.
