Debriefing and Reflection
The internet is a fantastic and seemingly endless pool of knowledge, which anyone can contribute to. This makes it easier to share knowledge than ever before, but it also makes it easy to be misled by incomplete or false information. How did it feel to read the articles knowing that they might not be true? Why is it important to know how to identify a fake news story? What damage could fake news potentially do?
