STORY

New Philosophy to Education

Wouldn’t it be more effective for kids to have a platform up and running in the first hour and start adding features on top of the platform as they progress, learning about different topics in the process!?

I think the process of tutorial based education with lessons starting from scratch is just too dull and boring for kids. What’s your thoughts!?

There are different names to the things you have mentioned. It’s like a Super Application from the user perspective. Building a platform itself is like having a clone of “Collaborizm” for kids 😃 We started experimenting with the tutorial based training with questionnaires in Kidrino project. Let’s see how things go.

Thanks Ranjan Dailata for your input. A platform that I mentioned here isn’t meant to be a Collabirizm clone. In fact, what I meant by platform, is a hardware platform and a software platform where kids can build on top of it. So the kids get a biped robot and an intuitive based programming app based on scratchjr. The kid can then add additional functionality to the robot, using add-ons and extra sensors and add the functionality using the mobile app. So a kid can choose to add infrared sensors to the robot acting like a gun and have robot duels and scoring appears on the scratchjr UI.

I checked out Kidrino and it is a wonderful effort to put in tutorials together for kids in a simple interface. My only intake though and from my experience with working with kids, it would be a bit boring for them as they wouldn’t be able to see a significant achievement whilst working on a very low level hardware concepts. I would love to see some tutorials based on programming and building biped robot like zowi. In fact i think it would be great to include those tutorials that teaches how to build biped robots and other inventions into the scratchjr based interface. I think it would be an amazing collaboration between both projects.
