On Wednesday, March 1, SIL School presented the project “Healthy Avatars” at Yomo (Youth Mobile Festival). The project is being developed with students from 2nd year of ESO and aims to promote healthy habits with four themes: food, rest, well-being and physical activity.
The project uses a methodology of inquiry and discovery in cooperative groups to attain the habits all young people need to lead a healthier life. Integrated in the project we have also deployed a basic training and the creation of products and experiences associated with the areas in which we work.
The design of the project originates in the framework of mSchools Edu_Hack, in which teachers of the School and teachers from other schools in a process of co-creation have participated. They met last February and collaborated with the objective of creating and developing materials and experience using digital technology in the classrooms in an innovative way.
Among the 15 final proposals validated by mSchools and the Department of Ensenyament, we have co-created, developed and implemented the “Healthy Avatars” project. We are currently in the pilot phase together with other educational centres in Barcelona.
