Teach Me A Lesson with Greg James and Bella Mackie

Are We Manipulating Images Or Are Images Manipulating Us?

Description

Greg and Bella are back with a another slightly terrifying Computing lesson from Mrs Cunningham-Smith, this time looking at how much we can trust our own eyes.

They'll share their own favourite photos of each other; open the history books for a glimpse at one of the earliest examples of catfishing and find out which incredibly famous photo of a US President is actually a fake; they'll talk about the modern dangers of deepfakes, and find out how filters and retouching can lead to dysmorphia; and they'll discuss the lengths they go to for the perfect selfie.

Bad students of all ages are welcome. Expect brilliant teachers, captivating subjects but absolutely no homework.
