Description

Beyond "Fake News" -  a tour de force around the global state of misinformation and propaganda, how it threatens to drive societies towards extremes and jeopardises the very concept of journalism. And how can we stop it? We think it is important to know how to find our what’s true and what’s not. And it’s a skill everybody should have access to. So, where to get started? After our presentation on the global state of misinformation we present an interactive session on verification skills, based on our daily Twitter quizzes on Quiztime. We let participants in the audience solve the quizzes together and live, right there, loads of fun included. 

Quiztime is now a daily Twitter quiz series around geolocation, source, time and context verification. Everyone can join in, solve the daily task by themselves or in collaboration with others and improve their skills in a fun way.
