The explosion of the “fake news” debate and the “post-truth” era has contributed to bringing to the fore a theme that has long been discussed: the need to educate users to get information online properly. Media and information literacy (MIL, according to the UNESCO definition) must be taught right from lower and upper secondary schools. This need is also emphasised by the OECD, which intends to evaluate MIL skills in the next PISA tests. Using innovative and participatory formats (quizzes, tutorials, and group debates), we will be introducing the basic tools for checking online sources. The Factcheckers Association was set up to promote these activities with an innovative approach (using interactive educational formats) and solid methodological standpoint, thanks to the collaboration with media education experts.
