The SCAI Protocol is a list of indicators and three measuring methods that aids analysts when measuring how trustable is a television news program. The list of indicators has been validated by over 150 experts in the fields of communication and media, sociology, academics, regulators, journalists and TV execs and organizations from civil society. The Protocol was tested by the Consortium and 30 television news programs were analized, 10 per country (Germany, Spain, Italy). The protocol can be divided in 4 categories: 1. Company emitting content, 2. Professionals, 3. Content Creation Process 4. Content Dissemination Process. Each indicator is measured in up to 3 different methods: 1. Through the search of public information from the television network 2. Through anonymous interviews from the journalists working at the television networks and 3. Through the analysis of the television newsprogram itself.
This toolkit was developed to provide youth workers with detailed descriptions of nonformal activities they may implement to make young people more aware and resistant to disinformation and/or fake news they may encounter in their daily lives. This toolkit is based on findings of the Erasmus+ KA2 co-funded project “Trust Label: Combating Fake News in the Digital Era» (SCAI) (registration no. 2019-1-ES01-KA203-063905). In a Consortium with Faculties of Education and civil society organizations from Belgium, Germany, Spain and Italy, the SCAI project is an initiative to create the Audio-Visual News Trust Label. With this toolkit, we encourage youth workers to implement activities in a non-formal context, using the tools and resources that the findings of the SCAI project bring to their learning process in the development of media literacy skills and resilience to false information. Includes examples of non-formal education activities for young people aged 16-34 on media literacy.
