Open the Box

Open The Box is a project developed by Dataninja, at the intersection of data literacy, media literacy and civic empowerment. The main goal is countering disinformation in Italy, with a constructive and long-term approach: attracting, training and educating a community of young “data-checkers” to promote better information practices among their peers. Empowering the role of consumers is a strategic commitment of the European Union, according to the policy document called Code of Practices, recently released.

The project replies to the MediaFutures 1st Open Call “Challenge 3: The New Media-tors – Reimagining and rebuilding the role of mediators to tackle misinformation around coronavirus”. Together with journalists and scientists, teachers and educators we can play a crucial role in tackling misinformation around scientific issues. The grant will help us in developing a component for self-paced training for teachers and educators as new mediators for developing media and data literacy skills among young people.


Dataninja is an Italian SME established in 2016 with a strong expertise in online education for digital skills. We manage a e-learning programme for spreading media and data literacy among professionals, school teachers and educators in Italy.
