#YouThink: Fight Fake News
Book design by Studio Dialogo

The internet makes it possible for kids to have easy access to information, but it is important that children and teens should know how to spot real from fake.
#YouThink: Fight Fake News is a zine-style activity book geared for kids ages 12 to 18. It unpacks false information and the many forms that it may take such as misleading information, fake photos, and deep fakes. It also discusses how context matters and even our emotional reaction to posts can be a sign that it is fake.
#YouThink is filled with information and, in the zine spirit, the layout is light-hearted and entertaining. The book comes with letters from different experts from science, health, media, and politics on how to be safe.
