New Academy of Finland Project on Critical Reading

The Crowd Computing Research Group is taking part in a new Academy of Finland project called CRITICAL!

Funded by the Strategic Research Council, CRITICAL will run for about three years and focuses on cultivating critical reading skills.

I’m personally a big fan of critical reading skills. Especially when it comes to the discussion on how much should digital platforms curb speech to keep misinformation, disinformation, and “hate speech” (however one defines that) at bay Vs. simply trying to educate people as better readers.

So, I’m happy to get the chance to help making the new youngsters better readers!
