DIGITAL SUMMER APP:
In our fight against corruption and the ills of society today, there is no generation more at risk or more vulnerable than our children. Hence the need to catch them young at heart and keep them safe within the bubble of morality and all that is good, pure, holy and true. While we cannot completely protect them from the evils and vices that has corrupted our world today, we can very well equip them with the right tools to keep them guarded and ready to face the world without fear of getting lost or caught up within the throes of moral decadence.
In the light of this, there is a need for moral and ethical formation of these young minds; to shape them in the right way and teach them not to be slaves to vanity. We are to eradicate that false notion from their minds that they need material validation to be seen as successful in life. It is our civic duty and responsibility as adults and grown-ups, to teach these little ones to grow to become responsible, morally upright and well-mannered individuals who can transform the world.
In a bid to contribute our own quota to restructuring society and making the world a better place; in trying to assist parents and schools in the child formation process, the idea of the DIGITAL SUMMER APP, comes to mind.
The drive behind the idea for this app is to create an atmosphere with a resultant ripple effect where people wake up inspired to love as Christ loved. These days, children grow up faster than they should. The idea of camp is to keep them longer as children in a world of fun and innocence while gently preparing them to face the world.
The Digital Summer App is a software proposed to be a fun learning digital space for children all year round. With this app, they are given a better substitute for shows or movies which are not morally sound for them. This software is designed in a way children would learn how to impact on the world because they begin to find their usefulness and relevance and how they can better fit in the society.
With this app, all the kids would be drawn together in fun. It is a space where they meet new people and build lasting friendships. They get to know people different from them and learn to appreciate others. They would also learn to feel great about themselves and not feel intimated when compared with others.
They would also get to learn social skills such as trustworthiness, character building, respect, participation, fairness, sharing, communication, community, service to others, resourcefulness, leadership, conflict resolution, teamwork etc.
Parents, Educators, Teachers and everyone interested in the total wellbeing of children would find this app proposal very useful and potential-filled.
