This week Psychology in the Classroom talks to Dr Daniel Jolley, Assistant Professor in Social Psychology at the University of Nottingham. His research explores the psychology of conspiracy theories,  where he is interested in understanding why millions of people find conspiracy theories so appealing. He is also keen to explore the social consequences of believing in conspiracy theories and develop tools to address their negative impact.  In particularly we talk about how adolscents may develop beliefs in conspiracy theories and how, as teachers, we can address such beliefs and encourage young people to critically assess the content they are viewing.  

If you wish to have a go with the Conspiracy Kitchen here is the link and you can find out more about Daniel's work here or follow him on twitter: @DrDanielJolley

Additionally (not mentioned in the podcast) Daniel has also helped to develop some lesson plan about mis/disinformation more broadly which can be found at Project Real.
