Creativity, play, exploration and technology for kids to become problem solvers of tomorrow – Playtests at SOMOs Infancia (Alicante-Spain)

Exploration and play are the natural ways for kids to learn and become interested in acquiring new knowledge and skills. To do so, children need to feel safe in an environment that is also inspiring. Technology plays an important role in this area being an interactive media which provides children with new exploration and creative possibilities. Technology can engage children and enable them to acquire new skills in creative ways as never seen before.

In our process of creating new gamified solutions to help parents and teachers nurture children with the passion for learning, we dedicate a significant amount of time listening to kids and observing how they learn. We have been collaborating with several institutions, playgrounds and kindergartens in Finland and abroad that share our values, to develop our solutions.

One such place is SOMOS Infancia playground in Alicante, Spain, where children are encouraged to learn through play. They are provided with an inspiring environment for them to explore and boost their creativity.  

Children feel safe and inspired to drive the space rocket in our digital environment, exploring new universes to learn new skills or meet the Fun Learning characters, who teaches about the many different ways of learning and the importance of values such as teamwork. They were delighted to meet Waaba, Maco, Tuka and Soca, curious to learn more about their personalities and the way through which they could identify themselves with each character.

We at Fun Academy believe we need to pay attention to our children and harness their interests and talents, so they can become creative problem solvers in a complex world. We must empower teachers through continuous support and training so they can help children develop life skills necessary to make smart decisions in the digital world of tomorrow. We provide holistic solutions for kindergartens, professional development for educators and gamified learning tools so they can enable children to become whatever they want in life. Even an astronaut.
