Guidelines for teachers and educators on tackling disinformation and promoting digital literacy through education and training

These Guidelines offer concrete, hands-on guidance for teachers/educators on how to promote digital literacy and how to tackle disinformation. Although it may not provide solutions to all issues, the guidelines have a comprehensive structure leading towards achieving training objectives like providing insight and useful knowledge about the dynamics and manifestations of disinformation, sharing information on how to use digital technologies critically and responsibly, providing insight into how students can be assessed regarding their competences in the field of digital literacy.

The Guidelines are intended for a variety of teachers and educators but primarily meant for primary and secondary school teachers/educators.

The guidelines were developed by the European Commission, with the support of the Expert Group on Tackling Disinformation and Promoting Digital Literacy through Education and Training.
