DescriptionNieuws-Je (News-You) is an online platform for interactive, social, fun, visible and accessible news for kids. After taking a good look at news websites for kids, we noticed that they were dull: news is slow, the websites are passive (text and video to click on, but nothing to interact with), the websites are not immersive: nothing that captivates a kid to the news platform, there are little to no filters so kids can choose what kind of news they'll get, the social element goes no further than a forum, which are often not visited by the kids. With Nieuws-je we try to give kids: a world in which the news 'happens', a world where they play their own journalist, and can make their own local news, news that can be shared with friends, and they can chat about with others, news in a language they understand, and a filter for what kind of news they want to read about.
