School Workshops

Our school workshops provide media literacy training to young people so they can navigate the digital world and identify the truth.

Providing Digital Wisdom

It’s never been more important for young people to learn how to critically examine the media and start making informed decisions.

In the first week of April 2020, Ofcom found that close to half of UK ‘online adults’ had come across ‘false or misleading information about coronavirus (Covid-19).

That’s where we come in, at The Student View, we offer FREE workshops for young people to help navigate the digital world and assess how social media impacts our everyday lives.
