What Is So Special About What We Do At PLAY ATOO?
“What is so special about what you do at Play ATOO?” is a very frequent question people ask. And it is very easy to quickly say that we are doing what no one has ever done before but of course that is not true.
What we are simply doing here at Play ATOO with our first kit, called the Universal Learning Board (ULB) for children between age 7 to 12, is to create a very relaxed learning environment where a child can easily develop skills required for the generation Z (children born between 1995 and 2015). These are the same skills that the World Economic forum has termed “an essential skills set for the future of work”.
Key traits of generation Z and How Play ATOO is helping
Generation Z have grown up in a world that hasn’t always made them feel financially secure, and they’ve taken that on board in their plans for their future careers.
Generation Z is more realistic. They dream of becoming entrepreneurs, building up their own businesses and never needing to answer to a boss.
With all the resources of the internet at their disposal, they know that running your own business can be very hard work, but they’re ready for it because they see it as a route to the financial security that they prioritise. (Oxford Royale )
Even though there could be a world where everyone of them would be an entrepreneur of some sort, they still need to arm themselves with skills they can leverage on to work for a while before fully launching their entrepreneurial journey.
Education of course remain key, and self-education will thrive more in the era of generation Z.
The Universal Learning Board (ULB) we designed, which is a mobile teacher in a box, will be a fitting tool for self-education aimed at developing 5 of the 7 future skills that the World Economic Forum said children in this age must begin to develop.
