If learning is fun, it takes less time to get extensive knowledge for the younger generations. Therefore, educators have to rely on children’s natural curiosity towards technology and use it for teaching. A Hungarian team called Innobie have developed an application, Eddie, that is based on this concept, as Microsoft.com reports.
Using a smartphone is natural for the children today, but the usage of these devices is not included in education. What is more, most of the Hungarian schools forbid using them. However,
modern technology could help teachers a lot, because experience-based learning is more effective.
Including technology in education is a key, since it has to be the priority of the educational system to give in-depth knowledge to the learners. Modern developments such as Eddie support this concept.
Eddie is a hybrid of the traditional workbooks and modern technology. The application reads special signs in the work book’s pictures. Then, it uses a modern way to introduce the material. This is how teaching becomes cheaper, easier, more modern and more efficient according to Innobie.
The team won the national ImagineCup competition that means they get to go to the regional round.
