Gameathon: fun and educational competition ... a new children platform in the time of COVID-19 || Gameathon: fun and educational competition
Due to COVID-19, children have been encouraged to stay at home and so WATAN developed an entertaining and educational event to encourage children to stay at home and adhere to preventive measures to protect against the risk of spreading the virus.
In cooperation with Öğrenme Tasarımları / Learning Designs, WATAN and Muslim Aid USA provided Syrian and Turkish students ages 8 to 12 the opportunity to play and interact through workshops that foster the values of friendship, teamwork and develop artistic skills.
The system held four educational and entertainment sessions online for nearly 150 children in Syria and Turkey, which included several educational and fun activities.
The sessions included:
- Talking about the rights of a child
- Writing a story
- The basics of drawing session
- Making dolls
