Kidibot Will Motivate Swiss Kids to Read and Learn More!
Kidibot is composed of a website + mobile applications, targeted to 6-14 yo kids.
Here, kids can solve quizzes after books they’ve read or math, science and many other topics. They win points and they help their team (class) to fight against Crocobets aliens.
Also, they can get points by working in teams and by creating their own quizzes.
There are missions they can take, they can involve in counterespionage acts, they can get Reading Certificates when they demonstrate they’ve read 25, 50, 100, 250 or 500 books, Volunteer Diplomas or Social Involvement Diplomas.
The teachers can see that the kids are doing, same as their parents.
If we have donations, we also run contests with prizes. For example, at team contests, the winning team gets books.
There are a lot of gamification features, because usually kids loose interest very fast. Kidibot so far we manage to keep the kids interest very high. Always a new development on kidibot.com is deployed on all kidibot local platforms, and so will it be on kidibot.ch.
My project is special because ...
Great story, very useful for kids between 6 and 14 years old: The little robot from outer space, called Kidibot, who helps Earth kids to fight against the Crocobets, the nasty aliens who want to conquer us through laziness and stupidity.
Great (and complex) mechanics behind: kids/teachers/parents accounts, missions, battles, rankings, counter-espionage, VIP endorsement (130+ VIPs videos), points system for kids, team chat,
Great numbers so far: 680+ schools (15% of all Romanian Schools) already use Kidibot, increasing with 1-3/day
Incredible feedback from teachers, parents and kids.
Great awards: 1st place 2017 Electrica Award, 3rd place Webstock 2017, 3rd place Digitaliada 2017, finalist Creative Business Cup
This is what I need backing for.
We want to launch Kidibot.ch in Swiss, so we can motivate Swiss kids to read and learn more.
What we’ll use the money for:
- import all Swiss public and private schools - so when kids will create an account, they will be automatically put with their colleagues in the same team
- create new quizzes after recommended books by Swiss teachers
- deploy the general Kidibot set-up: rankings (country, town, school, class), levels, missions, counter-espionage, stories, certifications, support and so on.
