Tv Notifications To Promote Trustworthy News and Local School Newspapers

The ubiquity of internet-connected devices allows people to stay informed. Additionally, the growth of social media and user-targeted information reinforces the need to check sources to prevent the dissemination of unreliable content. In this context, an innovative solution is presented based on the established proliferation of news notifications and the potential identified in the TV ecosystem since it connects multiple devices such as over-the-top (OTT) platforms and mobile devices. The proposed approach aims to send news notifications with a high level of credibility through television as well as the latest news from local school newspapers. This strategy expects to engage audiences of different generations and promote family discussion and critical thinking about current topics. Additionally, the dissemination of local events and school newspapers intends to create a sense of community beyond the school while promoting social and local cohesion. This solution results from the combination of two ongoing R&D projects that bring together the academia and well-established partners of the Portuguese industry. After the good results from a preliminary field trial to assess the receptiveness to news notifications on the TV, a second evaluation will be carried out with school students (who will create the news) and their families (who will receive the notifications at home). Finally, this solution is expected to contribute to more knowledge about fake news detection and the notification mechanism for the TV ecosystem.
