In a cooperation between the Danish Cultural Institute in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, the Baltic Centre of Media Excellence and the Human Rights Academy the traveling exhibition Fake ≠ Fact Info Lab exhibition was brought to the Baltic States and set up as an online event in Belarus, together with free educational workshops with Nordic and local Media experts.
The main goal of this educational project was to provide visitors and participants with tools for assessing the credibility of media sources and resources for distinguishing facts from disinformation.
Now we have collected and analyzed the results of the project and we think it could be valuable information for people working with Fake News or teaching media literacy or democracy.
We present the projects key insights, exercises, and different cases on Fake News together with results from the project. We hope the results and insights will provide new knowledge on media literacy and demonstrate our learnings from the projects.
The Fake ≠ Fact Info Lab exhibition, is based on the Museum of Work’s The Travelling Democracy Lab, which in turn originates from material by the Swedish Media Council.
This project is being supported by The Nordic Council of Ministers.
The Fake ≠ Fact Info Lab is part of the toolkit Fake ≠ Fact, which is introducing source criticism in the classroom and which is available on Sharingsweden.se
