DATAK, a game on the use of personal data

 

Radio Télèvision Suisse  developed a serious game about an increasingly important issue: the protection of  personal data. The game is available in English, German, French and Italian at https://www.datak.ch/and has the intention to raise awareness on data collection and on how our personal data can be used.  It is aimed at anyone aged 15 or over and brings to life the main themes of the investigation (social media, government surveillance, commerce and health).

The players of DATAK assume the role of a recent recruit hired to work for the mayor of a town to manage social media, and are confronted with various dilemmas in their day-to-day lives. There are important decisions to be made (in their private lives and for the community) against the clock.

The game results from a broad investigation on the use of personal data, available at www.rts.ch/mesdonnees

DATAK was developed by DNA studios with the support of the Youth and media platform of the FSIO (jeunesetmedias.ch) and its development was supervised by a panel of 15 experts.
