Cinekid – Ruimtejournaal

Ruimtejournaal or SpaceNews is a serious game that fosters media literacy for children from the age of 8 to 10. In this game the player will find real time news items from Jeugdjournaal, a dutch news station that has children as their main target audience. After getting instructions of what is considered newsworthy and receiving missions the player can explore space and different themed planets in search for the right news story. It gives the children the opportunity to explore, select, create, reflect and learn about news.
