The Finnish educational model teaches young students to push back against “fake news” as early as primary school. The Finnish government began this pedagogical push in 2014 when Russian disinformation became increasingly widespread in Finland.
Such a program is increasingly necessary as Finnish children, like their counterparts around the world, consume news not from traditional sources, but from social media, including WhatsApp, Instagram, and Snapchat.
Finland is overwhelmingly the top country in the European Media Literacy Index. The report described Finland and other high-scoring countries as best equipped to withstand the impact of fake news due to the quality of education, free media, and high trust among people. This early media education is an essential part of Finland’s success.
The education system emphasizes the breakdown of misinformation, disinformation, and "malinformation".
Misinformation includes errors that may be unintentional. Disinformation encompasses outright lies. And malinformation is what know as “gossip.” Malinformation may be accurate or inaccurate; either way, the goal is to cause harm.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
