  1. I know now tools to spot and debunk fake news. This workshop has shown me how bad the problem of fake news is (I knew it was bad, but wow!) I feel a lot more able to combat the ever-increasing problem of fake news.

  2. Excellent workshop. I’d suggest adding a section explaining how journalism works in terms of verification and fact-checking.

  3. This workshop broadened my perspective because, there was some things I never realized about websites and how easily they can fool people.
