Student Journalists Learn about Real Vs Fake News
HABED's student periodical team, who will be writing the next issue of our student periodical The Whole Shebang, attended a workshop on 'fake news, real news' to help aid their fact checking skills when writing their own articles.
The workshop contained a 40 minute session explaining the minute differences between real and fake pieces of media. Students then spent 30 minutes creating their own presentations which explored varying subjects putting what they learnt in the workshop into practice.
The students were also presented with their journalist badges which solidified their positions as budding reporters! The roles change every half term so all students have the opportunity to be a 'Editor in Chief' and 'Deputy Editor'.
The next issue of The Whole Shebang will be produced later this term.
