Promoting media education and critical consumption of the press
- Campaign to promote media education curriculum in schools
- "Fifth Power" Hackathon
Over the three days, teams worked on applications that would help media consumers filter information and detect manipulation.
In the end, the three teams that obtained the highest scores from the jury were designated the winners of prizes worth 2,000 euros each to implement their ideas.
- DIY News (Do It Yourself News). This platform will be available to Internet users to produce their own video news.
- Trolless. This app detects so-called trolls' fake profiles on social networks. It can be used by installing a plugin specifically created by the authors of the application.
- Caucasus Hack Pack (Georgia and Armenia). The team intends to develop an interactive game to help the students detect manipulation and think critically. Teachers will test students' knowledge before and after they use the app which will teach them to identify manipulative pictures and videos and about the credibility of sources among others.
