A SERIOUS GAME ABOUT MEDIA AND INFORMATION LITERACY

Newscraft aims to help young people better understand the day-to-day issues of online information making 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 their way of getting information.

Newscraft offers a support to debate different topics that are in the news: 
How do you build news stories about vaccines? 
How are women portrayed in the media? 
How to deal with armed conflicts, terrorism, religions, social conflicts, environmental issues, etc.?
