Abstract

According to the education secretary Damian Hinds, ‘teachers need to better prepare pupils of the risks of “fake news” and disinformation online’. In an increasingly network-driven society, it appears to be the case that pupils are not only part of the digital era, however that they are also part of the sub discipline of social media, and the risks of misinformation has become heightened.
