What can disinformation lead to? And how can we arm ourselves against it?
Historic perspectives, narratives and examples as well as current forms of deception are covered. In fact, there’s nothing new under the sun in this respect.
By using their personal smartphone pupils see the past and present merge at an authentic location. During this journey they are given tips to help them expose propaganda and hate speech, so that they realise the importance of adopting a critical approach to information.
This experience has been set up with support from the King Baudouin Foundation in collaboration with Mediawijs. We would like to express our gratitude to the Heritage App.

- Booking necessary, and soon to be available. Maximum 2 classes per hour, with a class starting every half hour (later starters will visit the memorial first)
- Preparation and follow-up soon available. This experience will be supplemented by a lesson on conspiracy theories by Mediawijs.
