Verify Social Media Content

To avoid being a tool for diffusing fake news, this webinar targets you and all social media users to provide you with tools to identify any fabricated content before sharing it. The webinar will tackle how to wisely use social media platforms and the ethical dimension and legal consequences of spreading deliberate mis/disinformation.

Verify Digital Ads

Did you know that the emergence of digital ads in front of you now on the Internet and on social networking sites is not random at all, but is directed to you specifically based on the analysis of your data? This unique session enables you to learn who is behind the sponsored ads, and the purpose behind their financing.

Verify Scientific Content

Scientific content is an active ground for spreading mis/disinformation. You may have come across dozens of scientific studies that discuss the benefits of coffee and dozens more that recommend avoiding it due to its negative effects.

In the third webinar of the Edit and Verify Project, we discuss how to evaluate scientific content, and distinguish between spurious and biassed ones.

Verify Deep Fake

Artificial intelligence provides numerous opportunities to verify information. However, it may also lead to a large amount of mis- or disinformation, using “deep fakes” technologies.

The Edit and Verify project’s fourth webinar, “Verify with us Deep Fakes,” gives participants the methodology and tools they need to spot deep fakes in videos

Media and Information Literacy for the Public

What are the public engagement methodologies and tools in combating dis/misinformation? On the International Day of Fact-checkers, the Arab Fact-checkers Network AFCN from ARIJ concludes the series of seminars from the first training track within the “#Edit_Verify” project, through the fifth session, “Media and Information Literacy for the Public”.
