Ethafa Kit - A kit to teach programminng and electronics through playful stories

Acronimo ethafa

Abstract Ethafa is a kit to teach programming and electronics to kids from 10 to 12 years through playful interactive stories, and through an approach based on gender neutrality and cultural inclusion. The project Ethafa is an educational ecosystem made of a physical kit and a tablet application. The kit consists of 5 programmable characters that can be assembled and then used to interact with the tablet application. The tablet application engages the kids in interactive stories featuring challenges that require problem solving and programming skills to be solved. As key outputs of the digital ecosystem, Ethafa produces digital interactive stories, step by step tutorials and online guides and educational formats and workshops for teachers and parents. Ethafa releases novel approaches and contents to support the digital transformation in education through the inclusion of the 21st-century skills in learning, from technology literacy to team collaboration and storytelling. It generates products (the physical kit), services (the tablet app) and knowledge ( educational contents ) that can be adopted in schools, educational informal spaces, and private in-home play.
