NewsArcade on the Media and Learning platform

Our colleagues from The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision have just published a new blog post on the Media and Learning platform titled “NewsArcade: Enhancing Media Literacy in Young Adults”. This article provides an overview of the NewsArcade project, which aims to improve media literacy among young adults through innovative, game-based learning strategies.

The blog post outlines the main objectives and methodologies of NewsArcade, emphasising its role in helping young individuals develop the skills needed to critically assess the information they encounter. The project uses interactive, game-based learning to make the educational experience both effective and enjoyable. Thus, NewsArcade creates an engaging educational environment that encourages critical thinking about media.

A significant section of the blog focuses on the scale-up experiments of NewsArcade. This part of the article details how the project is expanding its reach and impact. The scale-up experiments are designed to test the effectiveness of NewsArcade in diverse settings and among different groups. These experiments are crucial for understanding how the project can be adapted and implemented on a larger scale to benefit a broader audience.
