What educators say
"Escape Fake is a great way to deal with the topic of fake news in a playful way. The game offers many points for implementation in practice and is a great addition to other methods on the topic of fake news."
media pedagogue, City Library Rostock
"Through the interactive format of Escape Fake, varied and interesting experiences can be gained. The topic is conveyed in a low-threshold and vived way. It does not feel forced or school-like."
media pedagogue, City Library Minden
"Easy to integrate in workshops, but - especially in libraries - also a self-runner! Hang it up and everyone can use it whenever he/she feels like it!"
Librarian, City Library Wolfsburg
