October- Digital Literacy and Fake News Virtual Training


Thanks for this information.

I believe this is the second that have come across on the list, the other
was probably last year and I had raised an issue on the segregation that
the training was putting up.

The issue of Fake News is a phenomenon that applies to all ages especially
since Social Media hit. More elderly people are being affected by fake news
and keep circulating them via Social media. I would recommend that the
training be opened to people of all ages.
