BOOK NOW: Is that a fact?
Tuesday 12th January, 7.30pm (webinar)
Wednesday 20th January, 1pm (webinar)
Many of the parents and carers we speak to are alarmed by the influence of the internet on their children. They maybe ‘digital natives’ but we hear how youngsters “believe everything they see online” and accept conspiracy theories, hoaxes and other forms of misinformation as fact. This can give them a distorted view of the world and make them feel anxious or scared.
Our Parent Workshops (also suitable for grandparents, carers and other adults with children in their lives) provide a space to explore and address these concerns. We provide simple and effective techniques to help you guide your child to search effectively and evaluate what they see – helping them to tell fact from fiction online.
In these practical workshops you will:
- Learn how to recognise different types of misinformation.
- Practise fact-checking skills to share with your children.
- Learn simple techniques to improve your family’s digital information literacy.
