Explain your idea in details:
The Objective of the “CLICK” is to support quality education with providing equal opportunities of education to the children at primary schools no matter their social, economic or other conditions. Though we have more or less access to the internet in urban and rural areas of developing country named Georgia, we do not get the quality at primary schools. The idea is to create and use special mobile game application in Georgian named "Click" providing quizzes and virtual, visual explanation in mathematics and chemistry. Each child will have free access to personal user through the application while being at classrooms. The main idea is equal and free access to easily understandable ways and learn technical subjects which requires more than just verbal explanation and learning process becomes more interactive. The innovative component in this regard applies to usage of game in educative process. As we all know, the first association while hearing the words “mobile games” always comes entertainment but the concept is to transform games and entertainment to learning process and managing high interaction in gaming world from school children’s side. The game itself will cover the following areas: School Name. Username and Password : individual for each school children. Language: Georgian. Grade section. Levels of learning process : three main level divided according the studying year. Subjects : Mathematics, Chemistry. Tasks while playing the game. Time limit. Analyzing statistics: Strong and Weak side, individually. All in all , we get win-win condition: Children are provided with easy ways to understand and memorize mathematics and chemistry, Teacher have strong and highly involved students in teaching process on local and national level, at primary schools.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
There is the strong connection between the sustainable development in Quality Education and the mobile game application “CLICK”. This applies to the Sustainable Development Goal #4.1 "By 2030, ensure that all girls and boys complete free, equitable and quality primary and secondary education leading to relevant and effective learning outcomes" and 4.1.1 "Proportion of children and young people: (a) in grades 2/3; (b) at the end of primary; and (c) at the end of lower secondary achieving at least a minimum proficiency level in (i) reading and (ii) mathematics, by sex." In this sections “CLICK” operates with the following: Free access to education, Equal access to education, Proportion in grades at primary schools and achieving at least a minimum proficiency level in reading and mathematics, in addition to this: Chemistry. Therefore,“CLICK” applies to Sustainable Development Goal # 4.4 "By 2030, substantially increase the number of youth and adults who have relevant skills, including technical and vocational skills, for employment, decent jobs and entrepreneurship" and 4.4.1 "Proportion of youth and adults with information and communications technology (ICT) skills, by type of skill" In this section “CLICK” operates with the following : improving youth and adults technical skills while using the game application navigating virtually. What is more, this will address to the proportion of youth and adults with information and communication technology skills. Target group : Primary school children. Subjects: Mathematics and Chemistry. Measuring of the success will be qualitative and quantitative. Expected involvement : 10 schools for starting phase( first 3 months) in my home city (public/private). For the 1st year : covering Georgia with main cities: 100 schools=more than 2000 students involvement.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
The steps for implementation goes the following : Creating the mobile game application which is the main tool for implementing “CLICK”. T, Game developer team will work on creating the game itself. The parallel step is to create content in Georgian in order to deliver in mathematics and chemistry to primary school children and in which I am responsible for. There is special curriculum which is general for state and private schools in Georgia so the game will be in accordance with national curriculum but with explanatory and visualization sides of mathematics and chemistry via digital teaching methods. Children anyway play mobile games so if we accumulate their natural involvement in games, we get education via games and easy ways to memorize the content. For the starting phase the game will be created for Android application as it is the easiest way to download the game app for most devices such as PC or Tabs, including mobile devices. Each child will have their personal user and can use it while being at mathematics and chemistry lessons at school. Beside almost every school in Georgia is equipped with computers. Business model looks like the following: As long as the main idea is to provide free and equal opportunities of quality education to children at primary schools, school children will not pay any cent though the sustainability will be based on state and/or private school finance 5 GEL (=2.08 USD) per download and 3 months license. They have opportunity to invest in values such as equal and quality education to all children. This is what makes “CLICK” unique from this perspective.
Born in 1990, after breaking down Soviet Union, I was raised in middle-class family in a small city of a small country named Georgia at the border or Europe and Asia. My early childhood was connected to civil war during 2 years and my parents had to overcome lot of obstacles while trying to give me and my brother proper education. Afterwards, the country tries to develop and gain our niche on international arena;Working in public service in Georgia 5 years for now, I am proud I can deliver possibilities to citizens of Georgia being equal no matter of their social class or economic conditions. Besides several fields improvement in my country there is still lack of proper education which is so much important for the development of the society especially for children having quality education in primary schools. I graduated Bachelor Degree in my home country with Honors majoring in International Relations and at the same time while working in public service hall I have been working more than 6 years for now in the field of education mainly connected to trainings involving young people engaging themselves in self-development. As long as young generation especially students at primary schools are the basis of the healthy society and future of the county’s existence, my focus goes on them as their education is the fundamental for the whole society of Georgia. The more people receive quality education and equal possibilities to it, the more chances raise for my country’s positive change in the future. That’s why I created the idea of “CLICK” and yes! There is a click opening the new window to new challenges and equal chances to quality education for children.
