Information literacy in the fight against fake news : applying a learning object in a training programme for older citizens gran

This work is an experience report whose main objective is to present the development of a Learning Object (LO), implemented in a class of elderly people, in the informative training workshop in order to develop skills to identify false news. Elderly people as digital immigrants find it difficult to deal with information in web environments, resulting in the sharing of false news. Through the construction of an LOs it was possible to approach the topic of false news in a playful way. However, some limitations were identified in the understanding of the Course and its content if there is no mediator present.
