Astria Student Prompts

With increasing online and digital content, it is difficult to know real information
from 'fake news'. Using evidence from the game you played (Astria: Countdown
to Impact) write a blog to list the top 5 things you think people should watch out
for to help identify fake news.
Many people are posting fake news to grab other people attention. These
are five things people can do to help them identify fake news:
1. If something sounds sketchy, unbelievable or suspicious, search the
internet and check various website before confirming its truthfulness.
2. Check the sources the author/publisher has gotten his
information/news from. If it isn't well known or he/she hasn't put one
in, it may be fake.
3. Check the story's sentence structure, if its too dramatic or any spelling
mistakes are visible then it may be fake as well.
4. Check other news reports, if there aren't at least two news reports that
say the same perspective or news, then it may be fake.
5. Try to remember if you've heard of a similar news in the past. People
try to recycle old news but taking old news and changing the stories and
people involved.


On a scale of 1-5, how successfully did you problem solve with your partner today?
Please include any ways you would collaborate differently with them next time
you play.

On a scale of 1-5, I think that my performance and teamwork with my
partner is a 4. In my opinion, I interacted with her but I think it was
enough. Our environment distracted either of us delaying in us in our
work. We could've also worked and work together better. Next time I
would collaborate with my partner even more to get the most ideas of
both of us.
