Hi Éadaoin,

Welcome to the course! The article is extremely interesting and one which is certainly very relevant to today’s society. Global issues in 2023 certainly point to an increased importance in educating children around the key themes of development education. While children may be aware of certain issues through social media, it is important that we encourage them to become more critical consumers of content, and analyse what they are reading for bias, etc. As you have said, development education can have an important role to play in assisting children to separate between fact and fiction.
