We are excited to present the groundbreaking ‘INFODEMICS’ Comprehensive Research Report and its impact on the DigComp 2.2 framework. This study focuses on how young people are affected by false information about health and well-being, especially due to the rise of digitalization and the Covid-19 crisis.
The report has three main goals. First, it aims to understand the challenges and best practices in helping young people critically analyze media information. By identifying these challenges, we can better support youth in navigating the complexities of the digital world.
Secondly, the report explores how the DigComp framework can enhance the digital skills of young individuals, specifically in relation to their health and well-being. By using the framework effectively, we can empower youth to make informed decisions and engage responsibly with online content.
Lastly, the report develops innovative statements within the DigComp framework that prioritize the importance of health and well-being. These statements address the need for young people to have the skills to distinguish accurate information from misleading sources.
