Zeer trots zijn wij op onze samenwerking met de LEGO Foundation! Zij steunen namelijk ons speelprogramma in Rwanda die speciaal is gericht op het integreren van spel in het onderwijs. Want door te spelen leren kinderen beter, en werken ze zelf aan een betere toekomst. Dat is echt de kracht van spelen! #PowerofPlay
Right To Play har programmer ved barneskolen Nyakitono i Nata, Nord-Tanzania.
Ved hjelp av «Play Day» skaper man en felles arena hvor foreldre og lærere kan møtes. « Vi setter temaer som barnearbeid, tidlig ekteskap og barns rettigheter på agendaen. Foreldre verdsetter i større grad barns utdanning og ser hvilket ansvar de har for å gi dem en bedre fremtid", sier Morigo som er formann for skoleutvalget.
I 2012 besto kun 24 % av barna den nasjonale eksamen. Ved utgangen av 2016 hadde dette tallet økt til 79 %. #legofoundation#nårbarnlekervinnerverden#righttoplaynorge#tanzania#powerofplay
The language of play helps bridge the gap between teacher and students. Dino, a teacher in Mozambique, uses games to break the ice around taboo subjects like HIV/AIDS, sexuality and pregnancy. His students are responding by opening up and asking questions, taking responsibility for their bodies, and feeling motivated to support one another.⠀
"In a playful situation, it is easier to talk about ‘serious’ things which otherwise are considered difficult to discuss.” says Dino, "Play-centered learning is good for the teachers as well as the students; personally, I am now less fearful of addressing sensitive topics like HIV/AIDS, sexuality and pregnancy when I use a game. The students are also less scared of me and each other when we use a playful approach; they ask questions openly and participate. Using play relaxes everyone and we talk like friends."⠀
Dino completed his play-based learning training in 2015. Our training guides teachers like Dino in how to use play to develop students’ critical life skills like confidence, resilience, communications, and collaboration. For Dino, the training has helped to break down the barriers to communication between himself and the students.⠀
Spent the day learning about the importance of play for kids. Most of our kids and grandkids will work in jobs that haven't even been invented yet. Play and incorporating strategies of child and brain development is key to set them up with skills they can use. @lego is doing some pretty cool stuff with @unicef and kids around the world. And, thanks to @broadwbaby42 ,this is Emma as a Lego. ________________________________________________________#LegoFoundation#UNICEF#KidPlay#instagood#dailygram#kids
