On April 29, 2021, we invite students to join a digital workshop. Interactive elements on algorithms and media ethics, the "Under Pressure!" game and a discussion are on the agenda. Register now!
As part of the project “Peer Education and Gamification against Polarization” (PEGAP), the Schwarzkopf Foundation and its project partners Diversion and DROG have developed the “Under Pressure!” course format. It is designed to help students recognize misinformation, fake news and conspiracy theories and to react constructively and critically to news.
In cooperation with the Federal Agency for Civic Education (BpB), the upcoming digital workshop introduces young people (16 – 27 years) to the new format. In addition to interactive elements on algorithms and media ethics, participants will get to know the heart of the new course format: the “Under Pressure!”-game, a multiplayer that illustrates different techniques for spreading fake news.
