Forget about long old-school lectures. And learn via videos, podcasts, articles, animations, and short-reads.
How many times a day do you check your newsfeed or discuss news with friends? We receive regular updates and notifications from so many different sources — messengers, emails, media. It's trendy to "be informed", so we willingly open ourselves to as much information as possible. The information around us can, however, mislead us and overload our minds.
Just as coffee helps our bodies to stay awake, we need critical thinking to keep our minds focused and alert. We believe that as coffee has become a part of the daily routine for many of us, so should media literacy.
The online course "Verified. Course on media literacy" explains how to manage the information around us, and recognize disinformation and propaganda.
So how about some critical thinking with coffee to go?
