DigitalKidZ wants to donate the GO! coding boards to 1,000 Bulgarian schools and return the excitement of learning to bring students back to school.
Bulgaria ranks near the bottom of European education systems ratings. It is at the very bottom in terms of share of 16 to 25-year-olds who are not in school and not at work. Each year, between 15- and 18 000 children drop out of school. Outdated educational methods and tools are among the reasons for this worrying development. Our population is getting older and we are facing a growing shortage of school teachers.
DigitalKidZ GO! box provides everything a teacher needs to deliver a highly engaging STEM learning experience in a classroom. This includes curriculum-aligned lesson plans and "learning by doing" challenges that help students understand our relationship with technology, cultivate digital hygiene habits and turn textbook theory into real-life activities. DigitalKidZ GO! box also brings excitement to learning by giving teachers innovative and digital-oriented educational tools.
Science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics are at the heart of all "jobs of the future." We dream of students becoming the creators and not just the consumers of tomorrow's technologies. To complete our digital-oriented approach, we focus on the social-emotional aspect of learning, fostering strong relationships between teachers and students. We help learners apply their informal and non-formal learning to improve educational outcomes.
