How to use fallacy cards for training or as a working tool?
Cards can be used individually for learning,
like books on the same subject; the particularly immediate language of cartoons makes the
fallacy cards accessible even to a young audience.
These cards can be used in educational settings, especially in schools, where a teacher
who wants students to learn to present logical arguments can use them to guide a debate,
and distribute them for individual or group work.
(see some examples here)
Similar work can be done with a team that needs to analyze media messages: the cards can
be distributed to the members to make it easier to identify any fallacies.
The cards are suitable for use by coaches, counsellors and
psychotherapists, but can also be used to improve communication in the family.
