Great interactive storytelling is a powerful way to explain complex situations. The virtual extraterrestrial character NUSHU created by spanish news company MINUSHU has been tasked with the mission of understanding humanity and coming up with solutions to problems faced by planet earth. Media literacy and critical reasoning on global issues are the focus of the programming. ”It teaches empathy for other nations’ problems and imparts understanding and respect towards other cultures, which will increase children’s understanding of foreign places,” says the founder and director of MINUSHU, Eva Dominguez.

Technology and social media continue to advance children’s access to the world around them. The stories learners can explore on missions to understand the world with NUSHU include Fake News and Digital Privacy. “We have found that through the conversational nature of NUSHU, students are given the opportunity to reflect on what they are taking in and then apply it to their curriculum.”
