Media Party Africa is hosted by the continent’s largest data journalism and civic technology federation, Code for Africa, in partnership with Hacks/Hackers Africa.

Is that for real? How to verify citizen journalism

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this workshop, we'll look at different ways you can verify the reports that appear in your social media streams - everything from checking images for Photoshop to checking the 'digital trail' a user leaves behind. We'll go hands-on to try different tools for verification, and we can also try to test our knowledge by playing a game of 'Liars and Verifiers.'
