The Digital Literacy Curriculum, focused on disinfo detection, was developed with the Finnish government for integration in schools, supported by the EU Parliament.
We introduce methodological fact-checking to future voters and empower the future voters and their educators with tools to build awareness. We encourage them to think and check themselves while providing examples, collecting already made materials and existing open source verification tools. This toolkit supports educators to empower future voters to build trust and provide skills and terminology to resist a potentially self-fulfilling and lazy labels like “F*kenews.” This voter literacy toolkit is also compatible with the “European approach to tackle online disinformation” where the European Commission “encourages independent factcheckers and civil society organisations to provide educational material to schools and educators.”
