How to talk with kids about media literacy and critical thinking? It is never too early to teach the little communicators about manipulators and their activities, including by using fairytales and drawings! Within the workshop children can learn from Yale’s Associate Scholar Dr. Solvita Denisa-Liepniece, author of children’s book “Wolf the Manipulator” and beloved children’s book illustrator Marina Henina. Kids will learn some of the tricks manipulators use, as well as how to draw the Wolf and other heroes of the story, helping families become more resilient in times of information disorder.
There are many disinformation resilience projects in Latvia, including for kids of different ages.
