Escape Fake 2.0 applies the use of creative tools to media literacy education. The project’s main objective is to fight young people’s vulnerability to fake news and educate them through an augmented reality escape room game as part of an interdisciplinary Media Literacy Lab; interacting with a reverse reality hacker, players use critical thinking to solve clues and riddles. By monitoring media in four language areas – German, Italian, Hungarian, Romanian – the project will also investigate the topics reaching young people the most.
