The University of Washington Information School, in collaboration with the Seattle Public Library, San Diego Public Library, and rural libraries and Washington and Colorado, will co-design a set of innovative online play-based digital activities for children around combating misinformation in libraries. Activities will include researching and writing a white paper on children and misinformation; co-designing activities between librarians, teen leaders, and children; developing digital play-based activities; creating a scalabale online co-design curriculum for librarians to create their own play-based misinformation activities; and building a hub for accessing all the project resources. Families and children, public librarians and educators, researchers, and designers will benefit from this project.
