Interdisciplinarity: Connections that make it happen
Playing outdoors. Reading books. Learning with educational games. Discovering a world of possibilities on the tablet or on a sheet of paper. Uniting the room environment with the family and friends to the – so charming before the child’s eyes – digital world, using the augmented reality. These are the connections that provide to the new generations a light and much more effective learning.
A country that successfully applies the interdisciplinarity in its model of education is Finland. A reference worldwide, Finland’s educational model is based on interdisciplinary training, through technology, citizenship, and innovation.
Based on this same premise of working interdisciplinarity in favor of child development, PlayKids cares about bringing innovation to its products. “The progress is not to leave the old behind. It’s about getting what is valuable and harnessing the new tools for deeper, longer-lasting results. That’s what we hope to do at PlayKids, and augmented reality, for example, will help us get there”, says Breno Masi, PlayKids General Manager.
With that in mind, PlayKids has carefully developed two products that combine education with fun and digital with offline. The goal is only one: to be present in the various moments of the families lives, contributing to the kids’ development for a better world! Get to know a little bit more about them:
