What role does education play in combating disinformation? How can you, as a teacher, help students to be critical global citizens? From a critical examination of the concept of 'truth' we explore themes such as bias and censorship. And how you can have a good conversation about this in your class. We also share valuable tips for recognizing disinformation.
