CIVIX - Media Literacy : Educational Video Series
Fake News is real. And we’re here to combat it with the power of visual storytelling.
Space Heart Studio was honored to take on a project that aligned so closely with our values. The world of information is continuing to change faster and become more challenging to discern what news is from a credible source, or altered to persuade and confuse people. We collaborated with CIVIX to create a series of videos educating students about media literacy.
Our approach was simple. Create an exciting and imaginative world, with characters, trolls, and bots - while balancing real world examples of how information is fabricated and distributed. The series was integrated into almost every school curriculum across 11,000 schools in Canada - educating and inspiring over 5 million students to become more informed citizens.
