What’s your idea about and what need(s)/problem(s) will it solve? We have the idea of making an app for children from the age of 3 until…
We want to make children aware of the SDG’s and be more responsible about them in the future and hopefully take them to count when they grow up and start to work and be active citizens. To be aware of their own possibilities to do something about the 17 different goals (micro), save the communities (meso) and the world (macro).
In the prototype we will present the game for SDG number 13 but there will be an opportunity to make it for all the 17 SDG’s. On the microlevel we focus on learning by playing, so it’s a child friendly and simple game that children in the age will be able to play. The intention of the game on the microlevel is based on learning the children how to sort their garbage.
By playing this game we want to implement the sorting in their individual behaviour. On the mesolevel it still about learning while playing a game but a little bit more general information is given. The intention of the game on mesolevel is based on giving them more information about what happens with the garbage after you throw it in the garbage bin.
We try to do this by letting them play and follow some guidelines. On the macrolevel we focus on giving them the opportunity to learn about the climate and hopefully it will be a part of the individuals trivia. We also give them the opportunity to come up with their own idea’s to solve the problems that they have been informed about.
To do that we made a quiz. We have used the Heckman curve as a perspective on that investment in early learning can have many positive effects on the individual later in her or his life. We know that the Heckman curve is an economical perspective on a better way to use resources in the community/state.
We are aware of that there exist other experiments and research in the same field that shows us the opposite result: that too much investment in education at the early ages can actually damage the motivation for learning later on. We decided to believe in the Heckman curve related to our idea since we think that learning about for example climate actions from the beginning of an early age will affect the individual, the community and the world in in a positive way in the future.
