Google Teaching Kids About Fake News

Google is taking a lot of time to tackle fake news and one of the ways that they are going to be undertaking this task it by teaching kids aged 13-18 years old via a series of workshops called Internet Citizens. It has been designed by experts from the Institute for Strategic Dialogue, UK Youth and Livity, whilst Google has an advisory council which includes Metropilitan Police and thinktank Demos.

According to Google:

“The workshops will help young people find a positive sense of belonging online and teach skills on how to participate safely and responsibly, and use tools such as flagging and comment moderation to make the web better for all. Some of the specific topics include what could be done in response to offensive speech, fake news, echo chambers and how they could use video to bring diverse groups together.”
