The 2017 Media & Learning Conference took place on 6-7 April will focus on Digital Citizenship. It featured a plenary discussion on the importance of fact-checking.
The EJN’s adviser Jean-Paul Marthoz took part in the discussion which debated where the responsibility for learning fact-checking lies, in school or in the home.

From the organisers:
Media & Learning 2017 is all about inspiring, informing and sharing great ideas on what it means to be a digital citizen and how media fits into this process. Students nowadays are expected to play an active role online rather than simply being passive consumers of content, but what does it take to really instill them with the skills and competences to be effective, responsible and creative online? What’s the best way to ensure that students can be in the vanguard of taking back the Internet and using it as a tool for growth, harmony and positive development? How can our educational structures and players be part of such a development? These are the ideas we plan to explore in Brussels on 6—7 April in an agenda packed with learning and networking opportunities.
