Contest “Professione cacciatore di Bufale”: the winners will be announced in April!
After the great success of the contest “Bufale in rete: come riconoscerle!” promoted for the school year 2016-17 in collaboration with the Istituto Pasteur Italia, also arrived the second edition “Professione: cacciatore di bufale in rete!”, closed on 28 February. The new edition of the contest has been focused on the importance to allow the kids to become debunker of fake news.
The aim of IBSA Foundation for scientific research and Istituto Pasteur Italia was to enhance a digital literacy process in order to defeat the fake news.
Theme of the works
To participate to the contest, the kids became debunkers: they have not searched all the fake news circulating online, but exclusively the scientific ones. The development of the elaborates has been focused on comics. If in the previous edition of the contest kids were asked to locate online and draw a comic about fake news, this year they have made a step further, learning to uncover the scientific fake news that run on the web!
The winners will be announced in April!
