open KIDS

You always learn more when you are a teacher. Why not involve kids in teaching each other? Open KIDS would be a kindergarden/school programme in which schools would participate and kids would be the active participants under a supervision of their trained tutors and an expert - Jamie Oliver?/ They would all be thinking together how to change their own habits, how to teach each other about healthy food and about better/ healthier/ more interesting cooking.

It would be a project like open IDEO - but involving the kids. Kids would be the researchers, the idea givers. They would be thinking of how to change the attitudes /just like they usually do when they are involved in some school activities about world peace etc./ Except that this time it would concern all of them and make them learn what is good and what is wrong by telling the others what is good and what is wrong about food and about cooking. Telling others what to do is always better than listening to others /like mom/ telling us what to do.

Age of kids. The solutions to changing kids’ eating behaviors will vary depending on their age. What works for a toddler won’t necessarily fly for a teenager, although we suspect some concepts might be appropriate for all ages—even adults! Which age bracket does your concept address (tick all relevant boxes)?

  • Elementary (Kids) 5-10

Hurdles to success. Helping kids make smarter food choices comes with a variety of hurdles that have to be addressed in order for a design solution to be successful, which of these do you think that your Concept overcomes (tick all relevant boxes)?

  • Peer Pressure

Hey, thx Aaron! I imagine this as a bit of tutoring from the teacher and from Jamie or from other expert. First - some classes with main tips concerning eating, diet, healty cooking etc... second - creative thinking/evaluating the ideas for healtier eating and cooking in an online global community.
This is just a general idea of linking school with after-school community so each kid's local inspiration is used globally and it inspires other kids:
a. to find something healthy around them, to try it and to share it with the others
b. to try or to cook something new and healthy that came as an inspiration from the others.

This idea is good, but my reservation about it - is that it lacks the leap between the thinking and delivering of information, and then actually acting on that information. We need something to bridge this gap.

A possible solution would be that the child who is teaching should give an interesting and educational task that the students must take home and deliver in someway or another to their parents. (Children love teaching their parents a thing or too!)

That way though thoughts and ideas can be translated into some sort of memorable action.

Other benefits of making a child assume the role of the teacher might be
- It would help to overcome nerves
- It would become something everyone in the class would do, so it’s not about people being picked out.
- It would give the child an idea of what a teachers have to go through, and so hopefully they child would begin to have more respect for the teacher.

Using an edutainment interface is a nice way to teach the basics, not only to kids but to other ages as well. This concept can be easily scaled.

Thanks for the comment! I think that if they are given a task from their tutors at school to research what healthy food and eating is about and to tell others about it, they will be able to get some knowledge and to give advise. It is not about them knowing, but learning under a right supervision and with the evaluation.

At that age group, often kids do not have the requisite understanding to be able to make the right choices, or give the right advice.

Overall, I think this idea is trying to build on a good foundation, but lacks depth.
