Africa Check’s Fact-checking and Misinformation Literacy Programmes

Register now for Africa Check’s fact-checking and misinformation literacy programmes for high school educators.

Moving from one social media platform to the next, your learners are flooded with online information every day. Do they know how to distinguish between what is true and what is not? Let the continent’s first fact-checking organisation give you the skills to help learners sort fact from fiction.

Africa Check is currently offering free online training-of-trainers fact-checking programmes for educators. Each programme consists of either three 90-minute online sessions or two 2.5-hour sessions. Learn how to identify so-called “fake news” or false information and out-of-context images or videos, and how to teach learners to do the same.

Open to Principals, Deputy Principals, Department Heads and Grade 8 to 12 educators from Gauteng, Free State, KwaZulu-Natal, the Eastern and Western Capes.
