The internet makes it possible for kids to have easy access to information, but it is important that children and teens should know how to spot real from fake.
#YouThink: Fight Fake News is a zine-style activity book geared for kids ages 12 to 18. It unpacks false information and the many forms it may take such as misleading information, fake photos, and deep fakes. It also discusses how context matters and how our emotional reaction to posts can be used to discern fake news.
#YouThink is filled with information written in child-friendly language. The zine-inspired layout is light-hearted and entertaining. It also comes with letters from experts from science, health, media, and politics on how to be safe.
