Members of the Disinformation and Media Literacy Special Interest Group (DML SIG) at the University of Cambridge have released a Youtube recording of a discussion on the topic of media literacy.

Cambridge academics from the Departments of Psychology and Ukrainian Studies meet partners of the Dutch team DROG to exchange views on how best to utilise gamification in 'inoculating' people against susceptibility to pernicious disinformation.

Fighting disinformation and 'fake news' online requires more than crucial measures like fact-checking, government regulation, and corporate reform. Especially in the midst of a global pandemic, it requires a sensitivity to human behaviour and to the ways disinformation can gratify and reassure us, confirming our biases and feeding our sense of exception. 

The recording is accessible on YouTube; links to some of the online games dicussed can be found in the event description on Youtube.
