Head and heart

Posted on: July 2, 2020

A recent tweet from Malala Yousafzai gave me pause to reflect.

Here is a challenge: Ask any one in a local school how students are prepared to deal with misinformation and disinformation. You might be told that there are “cyber wellness” programmes or that information literacy is built into curricula.

But this is the rub. Misinformation and disinformation are not just cognitive challenges. They are emotional ones too. The video in the tweet highlights how they might very well be emotional challenges first.

The programmes and curricula might try to prepare the head. But how do they attempt to prepare the heart?
