We are literally being swept away by a wave of fake news – how can we deal with it?
The project consortium of the No Alternative Fact project has found answers to this question. Join us and find out! More details will be published very soon.
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.
We reported on the training course carried out in February 2020 in Göttingen by the partners of the No Alternative Facts project. Unfortunately, participation in the course was limited to the partner organisations. But we are happy to say that all elements developed by the partnership will be made available to all interested parties through the No Alternative Facts Platform. On the platform you can find three things aimed to promote critical digital literacy:
- The No Alternative Facts Gamification Environment
- The No Alternative Facts Toolbox of Resources
- The No Alternative Facts Modular Learning Programme
We thank all participants for the great atmosphere, the high level of creativity and the many inspiring discussions.
We wish all participants all the best for their learning projects. … and then we will see you online some time soon!
In the first project months the project partners have conducted comprehensive research actitvities that have given interesting insights how young people in different European countries experience the fake news phenomenon and to what extent they apply their critical thinking skills when exposed to untrustworthy information. For that purpose, a combination of four research instruments (PESTLE analysis; best practices analysis; survey; and interviews/focus groups) were applied. All results were summarised in a European report. Continue reading
The project partners met on 21./22.05.2019 in Vienna for their second partner meeting. The meeting was primarily dedicated to the development of the training course and the necessary resources incl. the gamified platform where all elements of the training would be provided. It was revealing to see how the platform would look like and what it would offer. Continue reading

On 20./21.11.2018 the partner consortium of the No alternative Facts project met in Sofia, Bulgaria, for the two-day kick-off meeting. The project aimed to create common ground in terms of envisaged outcomes, future activities and ways to approach our target groups.
First steps: The partners will start with conducting comprehensive research activities in order to get an overview of the current state of affairs in the partner countrues as a basis for developing a state-of-the-art interactive learning environment aimed to support educators in increasing their competences and resources to promote media literacy, and critical thinking amongst disadvantaged young adults. The research activities will include desk research, focus groups and interviews and an large online survey.

The EU-Team is excited about the start of a new 2-year project tackling intentional misinformation in digital technologies through critical thinking skills and media literacy.
Young people today are growing up in a globalised world and are processing information from a wider variety of sources than ever before. They need the critical literacy skills to navigate the potential pitfalls when consuming news, particularly when using online sources and social media. Media literacy is crucial for sustaining democracy by knowing which information sources to trust and which media are trustworthy.
This is where the project comes in – we want to develop tools to support trainers and tutors working with (disadvantaged) young adults, in order to increase their media literacy, critical thinking and digital competences with the aim to raise their awareness of the phenomenon and to prepare them to take more activiely part in decision making processes and, last but not least, in a democracy.
