Supporting the development of digital resources to combat misinformation through online intergenerational co-design.

The University of Washington iSchool (PI: Jason Yip) requests $249,745 from the National Leadership Grants for Libraries program for an implementation project grant (Goal 1: Objective 1.1). The overall need is to equip children (ages 6 – 13) with the resilience and knowledge they need to combat misinformation. The intended impact is to co-design, promote, and nationally disseminate a set of innovative online play-based digital activities for children around combating misinformation in libraries nationwide. To do this, we will develop online intergenerational co-design teams across the USA led by librarians and teens around misinformation. The partner organizations for this project are The Seattle Public Library (SPL), San Diego Public Library, and WA State rural libraries.
