Is this fake or not? School project

Cooperation with the Geschwister-Scholl-Schule Göttingen and the local radio station to raise pupils’ awareness of fake news with the aim of producing a podcast on the subject

Since mid-September, there has been a weekly workshop for interested pupils at the Geschwister-Scholl-Schule on the topic of Fake News. The pupils explore the topic together and develop a podcast for the Stadtradio Göttingen. The afternoon lessons are organised by two members of the No Alternative Facts project team on the basis of the course organised in February. The activities are accompanied by a media educator from Stadtradion, who is then also responsible for the technical implementation later on.
The podcast is expected to go on air early 2021.
