Short Info: Fakespotting will be implementing brand new tools for the innovation of the higher education and adult education field, allowing the deployment of original digital and information literacy contents, assessments and toolkits tackling skills mismatches to prepare students and low-skilled adults for jobs where shortages exist or are emerging.  Digital Information literacy is directly related to the individual’s employability, to get employed and to stay in employment or to move on in the workplace. PIAAC indicates that 20 to 25 % of European adults aged 16 to 65 with low levels of proficiency in digital information literacy face higher risk of unemployment and social exclusion.  A cross-cutting need in the digital labour market is to close the digital gender gap. In the EU fewer than one in five ICT professionals are female. The criticalities heavily affect also the democratic participation of European citizens as digital literacy is totally related to the capacity to spot disinformation.
