Fun Academy creates Fun Learning solutions to give every child in the world the best start in life. In this journey we collaborate with many partners who share our values. This is the story of our partnership with SOMOS Infancia.
Why invest in education technology for children?
Exploration and play are the natural ways for kids to learn and become interested in acquiring new knowledge and skills. However, to do so, children need to feel safe in an environment that is also inspiring. Technology plays an important role in this area. After all, it’s an interactive media which provides children with new exploration and creative possibilities. Thus, technology can engage children and enable them to acquire new skills in creative ways as never seen before.
Role of SOMOS Infancia
Fun Academy creates Fun Learning solutions to help parents and teachers nurture children with the passion for learning. Therefore, we dedicate a significant amount of time listening to kids and observing how they learn. In this process we collaborate with institutions, playgrounds and kindergartens in Finland and abroad that share our values. One such place is SOMOS Infancia playground in Alicante, Spain. It’s a space where children are encouraged to learn through play. Moreover, they’re immersed in an inspiring environment and encouraged to explore and boost their creativity.
What happens in SOMOS Infancia?
At SOMOS Infancia, children feel safe and inspired to drive the space rocket within the digital environment. They explore new universes to learn new skills. Furthermore, they meet the Fun Learning characters, Waaba, Maco, Tuka and Soca. Through these characters children uncover different ways of learning and the importance of values such as teamwork. They are curious to learn more about the personalities of the Fun Learning characters. Moreover, children find great joy in discovering how they could identify themselves with each character.
At Fun Academy, we believe we need to pay attention to our children. It’s important to harness their interests and talents. This way we can enable them to become creative problem solvers in a complex world. We must empower teachers through continuous support and training. In return, it will equip teachers to help children develop life skills necessary to make smart decisions in the digital world of tomorrow. We strive to provide holistic solutions for kindergartens, professional development for educators and digital learning tools. Our dream is to support teachers to enable children to become whatever they want in life. Even an astronaut.
