Interestingly the most able students were able to see the holes in conspiracy arguments quite quickly. The less able tended to fasten on to lazy arguments about photography and then stoutly defend them despite the evidence and regardless of the strength of the evidence.... Not unlike here in its heyday in fact!

I haven't uploaded any of the presentation yet as I haven't got the permissions.

It is interesting to see the differing standards of proof that young people can apply, and how that can change.

Some will accept anything shown on YouTube as 'proof'; other display a far more discerning approach. It is heartening to note that some young people see the error of their ways, examine what they accept, apply standards to it then re-assess their conclusions.

It is good that some younger folks have that ability, instead of just watching a HB video on YT and come away with the wrong idea/perception.

Good for you!
