The TC will have 24 youth worker/trainer participants, 4 from each partner NGOs. The training will be led by experienced CDER trainers.

The goal of the ToT is to provide news literacy, critical thinking and media activism learning skills for the youth workers/trainers from partner NGOs.  After the ToT, they will be empowered to educate young people in news literacy and critical thinking by using blended learning. They will also perfect their writing skills and start writing for the TYM.

During the ToT, the participants will develop a range of knowledge and skills in the field of news literacy, critical thinking and media activism. They will learn: about news literacy and its importance to an individual and society; how media and journalism influenced society in the post-truth era; how to recognize manipulative media techniques; how to identify fake news, photos, video content, and social media accounts; what is information disorder, and what is information pollution?; what are algorithms, news feeds, filtered bubbles, and echo chambers?; what is the difference between bots, trolls, and cyborgs?; how to find the sources of reliable source information and how effectively to search the Web… and many more things that will significantly improve the quality of their understanding of the news and the use of social networks. They will also improve their critical thinking and skills to understand, interpret and critically evaluate media content, as well as practical skills to create media messages – in particular to write texts for the media. The participants will also be familiarized by the existing OER in the field of media literacy, and learn how to use the blended learning method in education; in concrete terms, how to educate young people in news literacy and critical thinking by using this method
