educaDe is a gaming initiative that provide educational gaming experience to pupils in the foundation phase (Grade 0-Grade6), through the use of arcade machines. The initiative seeks to place standalone and/or portable arcade machines equipped with smart ware at school grounds, entertainment centres, shopping malls, e.t.c. The arcade machines will be linked to a centralised server, which will ensure that the games stay updated at all times.
The educaDe gaming machines are also to serve as pupils’ profile record. The profile record will save all the important information (scores, frequency of all games played, e.t.c), through smart carefully designed mathematical algorithms, the machines will be able to identify the kind of pupil the player is. The information can later be used by parents to know which academic type do their kids fall into ,help their kids to choose subjects that complements their skills and provide relevant career guidance at an early stage.
educaDe hopes to provide quality provoking education to all pupils in the foundation phase, irrespective of the pupil’s geographic location and economic status. Previous research and studies have shown that learning is more effective through experience and comparison. educaDe machine gives reasonable control over the learning environment and how pupils play, thus rendering a memorable experience which hopes to improve the learning abilities. The initiative hopes to practically exercise the quote “teach me I’ll forget, Show me I’ll remember, involve me and I’ll learn”
There is a strong proposed plan drawn already to provide the culture that will attract both female and male pupils. All players will be allocated educaDe access cards in a form of a wrist band, various methods will be provided to upload gaming credits to the cards. Big educational related companies (stationery companies) will be invited to adopt poor schools and upload gaming credits for all pupils in need.
The educaDe machines hopes to serve as an equalizer tool to close the gap between the private and public education. The main aim is to enhance various educational systems and provide vulnerable children with quality foundation education.
