NewsFlash! is a fun online video game for 8-12 year olds with supporting educational resources for parents, carers and teachers. Both the game and supporting resources aim to enhance digital literacy and introduce children to the skills needed to critically think about misinformation. NewsFlash! will enable pre-teens to analyse their research habits, develop skills for assessing the legitimacy of information consumed, and support better understanding of the impact of misinformation. 
NewsFlash! was developed by Sutton Council’s Cultural Services following an Engaging Libraries award in 2019. Further background information about the project can be found here.
