A SERIOUS GAME DEDICATED TO MEDIA AND INFORMATION LITERACY

Newscraft aims to help young people better understand the day-to-day issues of making information online and decode all media discourse.

Through a global approach to media and information literacy, Newscraft is also a tool to better identify fake news and "conspiracy theories". The challenge is to support young people in the best way possible in the way they inform themselves.

Newscraft offers a support to debate different topics that are in the news: 
How do you build vaccine reports? 
How are women represented in the media? 
How to address armed conflicts, terrorism, religions, social conflicts, environmental issues, etc.?
