Overview

Educating and empowering new media technology users to recognise and delete ‘fake news’ and misinformation distributed on social media platforms.

Social media platform users are often subjected to manipulated, news-look-alike information packages, including audio and video clips, which mislead them into believing and sharing false and defamatory information and propaganda.

This project will use media literacy, animation and internet technology skills to design a gaming learning module to educate social media platform users and empower them to detect and delete (not share) lies and misinformation sent to them via their social media networks.
