Jocus is the Latin for Joke or fun and the fundamental point of the Jocus app is to have fun and create stuff! The Jocus app is a tool to spread creativity and socialise, the real stuff comes from the actual kids and what they make!
Many kids nowadays are constantly on smart phones and tablets playing games, watching videos flicking through pictures and just playing around with the device. With the Jocus app, it would encourage kids to make, do or draw something pretty much anything creative at home/school or wherever they like and upload it onto the Jocus Creativity app. The fundamental idea is to get kids to start boosting creativity through the use of smart phones and tablets. What the kids make will be determined by their teacher, for example the theme might be to build a small tree house. How long to be spent on each theme could also be determined by the teacher e.g. One week or two weeks on each project. The data the kids upload onto the app could then be viewed by their teachers (via the schools icloud database) which would be displayed in class and also social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter. These activities could take part in school or out of school; hence the whole idea is to share the work the kids have created. Kids can also work in groups depending on the task set by their teachers; this would increase their confidence as well as creativity.
Each up-loader will be rewarded by a point system; so eventually the more creative things they do and upload on the app the more points they will receive. The more points you get the more sweets u may win as a prize in school! This app is aimed at kids starting from the age of 4; with the help of their parents they can use the app to upload and display what they have made or done. The idea is to encourage kids to use Smartphone’s not as a toy but as a tool to enhance their creativity and consequently their confidence.
