DigiTools shows you how teenagers may be radicalised online. The goal of the interactive story is to illustrate how disinformation, filter bubbles and echo chambers are used to manipulate people and how you can avoid falling victim to violent extremism online.
You get to follow Lucas, a 15-year old boy, as he is drawn into extremist content online. The comic-style story is accompanied by interactive quizzes allowing you to apply the things you just learned to real-world scenarios. While the story is fictitious, an effort was made to make it as realistic and inclusive as possible.
DigiTools was developed by a team of Law and International Relations students at King's College London for the Rule of Law Innovation Challenge - a competition run by the international legal charity 'Lawyers Without Borders'.
