Players develop the skills to become news-literate by practicing four distinct skills in a game format: distinguishing news articles from opinion pieces, advertisements from other types of information, false evidence from factual evidence, and fact-based statements from opinion-based statements. Informable is an innovative step toward building more responsive tools for real-world learning — expanding beyond the classroom by offering educational opportunities to the public.
