Flexibility means quality
Stockholm is growing and many new pre-schools are going to be built. In a dense city, creating and identifying a high quality outdoor environment is a challenge. We know for a fact that space is an important factor for a child's development but we also know that there are other things that is important for kids like change, technology....
Technology in stable objects
Inspired by Dansbana in Vårby gård – we want easy technological solutions for outdoor environments that will ensure kids development in a modern world.
Activation of all senses
All kids learn differently and need to activate different senses in order to achieve the educational goals as well as having a fun, fulfilling and equal outdoor environment.
In winter time a lot of space outdoors can't be used in the intended way therefore we would like to transform these objects.
The idea is to rotate toys and artefacts between different playgrounds i the city district of Årsta-Enskede-Vantör. The items are going to be loose objects that are easy to remove and install.
Think Pokémon go in the pre-school yard but in accordance with educational goals.
Technology & flexibility as criterions in evaluation
today neither of these criterions are thought of as important but we have discovered that they both play a crucial part for kids' individual development.
Activity box rental
is a box that's thematic, seasonal and adapted to different kids needs/ages. It has a QR-code that leads to instructions, ideas and inspiration.
a) would be an online platform where teachers could order these themed boxes, exchange knowledge and think of new ideas.
b) would be a local library where you could rent a box. Used toys can be brought in to the library which makes this a sustainable and local option.
