Focus: Decipher ads to make good decisions
The Center for Disease Control has designed a colorful interactive life lessons system designed to provide key information in many of the areas young adults encounter (6 Key areas). Within the “Your Life Category” you will find the game Ad Decoder. Ad Decoders is better described as an interactive instruction Vs. Game tool. The content very clearly helps individuals recognize the behavior messaging presented in advertising. The presentation presents ample opportunity for “Life Event” discussion.
While the focus of our critique is Games, please take a moment to review the entire site. There are several exercises worth a second look; particularly the Food and Nutrition Section.
