When reading news stories online, children are vulnerable, according tomedia MSPoweruser. Because there are many news outlets that spread fake news today, it is important to have children access to real news around the world. Hollywood superstar Angelina Jolie has teamed up with Microsoft and BBC World Service to provide fact stories for children.
Through this program, children will be able to learn about what is happening around them and will have a deeper understanding of the different problems faced by their peers in other parts of the world.
“The most important thing in this day and age is to introduce the next generation to an objective, fair and factual interpretation of the events and problems that make up our world,” she said. Today’s children have a lot of insights, but not necessarily reliable facts-based information. “
As part of the project, BBC Learning, Microsoft Education and Teams and Flipgrid have built a platform to help students share information, create their own content, and collaborate with teachers and peers.
