Enable Digital Literacy, Citizen Journalism, and Prevent Misinformation
On Digital Literacy, Citizen Journalism, and Misinformation
With this Anti-Misinformation training, I can now detect which images are hoaxes, and what information is opinion or fact.
In today’s world, digital literacy is increasingly necessary for obtaining information, learning, working, connecting to people, and influencing. Atma puts a premium on helping the digital underserved to get connected and create change. We understand that to unlock that power, digital and information literacy are keys to solve the problem. That is why in person training, robust user engagement strategies, and nurturing users are key to our approach.
Atma Tools for Digital Literacy, Citizen
First, Atma trained 1000s of people through in-person and virtual digital literacy and citizen journalism training sessions, with a focus on women and youth — in urban areas and remote villages, to older people as well as young people. Second, Atma has also trained people in recognizing digital misinformation. Third, Atma’s peer-driven communication network, AtmaGo, is designed to be easy to learn and use, thereby encouraging even digital newcomers to participate online with confidence.
