DIGIBARN's latest projects
DIGIBARN's latest prototypes
PROTOTYPE 1 - POST IT!
The first prototype is that of the posters for awareness, called “Post it”. There´s a lot of stigma around digital tools in the preschool, and we see this as a result of a lack of insight into the process and things happening with digital tools. One quick way to spread information to the public is that of posters which spread a clear and strong message about the situation.
PROTOTYPE 2 - TOOLBOX
The next prototype is named “Toolbox”. The "Toolbox" prototype is an upgrade of previous digital toolboxes available in Hägersten - Liljeholmen, which supplies preschools with digital tools, that can be borrowed via the administration in the district. The solution aims to improve and simplify the content and instructions of already existing digital toolboxes.
PROTOTYPE 3 - DIGITAL PED
To help our challenge givers to improve their logistics and booking, we created a mock-up of a new booking system, named Digital PED. The idea is to gather all the information in one place, and include background information as well as informative videos of the digital toolboxes being used. After they have had the possibility to explore the different concepts, they are provided with a link to the booking platform.
PROTOTYPE 4 - STAR NEIGHBOUR VISIT
The next prototype is that of the star neighbour visit. In this prototype, the aim is to create new peer-to-peer opportunities, in which teachers and children inspire and teach each other about digital tools. We have identified that there are teachers with a lot of knowledge in the question, which we call star-teachers, and that there are many teachers with less or no knowledge.
PROTOTYPE 5 - BASELINE MANUAL
The final prototype is that of the baseline manual. This would be a short manual giving an overarching background to digital tools and digitalisation. By this, all teachers would have access to easily understandable material in the subject. It would also contain simple instructions of how to use the basic infrastructure available in the preschools, such as Ipads, projectors and magnifiers. Why not use the projector during story-time to give the children an exciting background to the story? These simple and visually instructed tasks would mean that all teachers would understand some digital tools, thus meaning that they become integrated into the every-day life of the preschools.
