Register at www.menti.com (audience feedback in real time system) to create a survey window according to the following questions: Where was this picture taken? (Enter the country); Where was this picture taken? (Enter the city). You can use photos for recognition from this information testing game: https://firstdraftnews.com/resource/test-your-verification-skills-with-our-observation-challenge/ The game (in English language) asks to indicate an exact location, where the photos were taken and the algorithm allows 3 guesses.
The peer educator gives a short explanation, saying that in the modern digital world changing the reality by manipulating various visuals and photos or providing them as proof is very easy. Therefore, in order not to end up trapped in manipulations, you need to be particularly careful. The peer educator says that activities, introduced during this seminar are excellent for developing perception skills.
The peer educator invites the peers to join the menti.com voting account by entering the code, generated by the website. Menti.com is used to submit a guess, which country (city) a photo is made in. 3 most popular guesses are included into the Firstdraftnews results. You can advise, which details should be noticed by the audience, to use Google Image Search, etc.
If the audience wants to take another vote, it can be done on menti.com after clearing the question results.
The peer educator summarises the seminar by saying that today we encounter information overflow and, at the same time, lots of distorted information, while photos are used as one of the manipulation forms.
