Countering fake news and hoaxes: the PCTO project suspended in March resumes in virtual mode - ISS (EN)
The Istituto Superiore di Sanità (ISS - Italian National Institute of Health) interacts with the world of schools on several fronts with the aim of contributing to disseminating education on correct lifestyles among students and including health promotion in their school curricola.
The section includes topics related to COVID-19, activities of School work alternation programs (Pathways for Transversal Skills and Orientation) and other initiatives of interest to schools.
We are pleased to announce that the PCTO Course “From post-truth to the truth of posts, to the truth of facts. Countering fake news and hoaxes to focus on scientific information” will be concluded remotely in a virtual environment.
The project, which started in February and was suspended in March due to the Coronavirus pandemic, aims to inform young people on the correct ways to search for health information and to encourage them to identify and adopt new communication syntaxes to be transferred to their peers with original products.
Currently, for security reasons, due to the problems relating to Covid-19, it is not possible to welcome students at the Italian National Institute of Health (ISS).
