Project Description

Faced with unprecedented access to news and information, our ability to discern between legitimate and misleading sources has never been more vital. Information literacy* is a skill to be learned, developed and constantly refined.

 * “Information literacy is the ability to think critically and make balanced judgements about any information we find and use. It empowers us as citizens to reach and express informed views and to engage fully with society.”
