Evaluating Digital Literacy Interventions Across Platforms

Misinformation mitigation is pivotal at various levels, from fostering a well-informed and cohesive society to ensuring the smooth functioning of organizations, down to individuals leading contented lives. In this panel, we have assembled a distinguished group of experts from academia, industry, and non-profit sectors to delve deep into cutting-edge approaches for countering misinformation. Our discussion will span a broad range of topics, such as long-term initiatives to understand the importance of establishing trustworthy organizations that stand as beacons against misinformation; proactive methods to debunk myths before they gain traction; digital literacy interventions that aimed at equipping individuals with the skills to discern factual content from misleading information online; scalability techniques to amplify these strategies for wider reach and greater impact; and impact assessment methods to measure the success and influence of these misinformation mitigation strategies.
