開彥教育設計有限公司:碰碰卡重組詞彙 遊戲中學雙語

by Prof. Catherine McBride

Objectives 目的

Language learning in early childhood is a daunting yet exciting task for educators. Cayan has developed a card game to spark the creativity side of things in children's bilingual development.

對教育工作者來說,幼兒期的語言教育刺激又富挑戰性。 Cayan開發了一款紙牌遊戲,以趣味的方式激發孩童的雙語發展和創造力。

Beneficiaries 受惠對象

 

Children aged 3-8 from low-income families

3-8歲的兒童,特別是來自低收入家庭,最有可能遇上早期識字問題的小孩

Social Impact 社會效益

 

The team promotes interactive language learning via a fun and economical game, especially for disadvantaged children. An electronic version will however not be launched because face-to-face contact in the game is essential for children’s development, and an effective means in fostering connections in families. Children should not be afraid of mistakes when playing Bumper Cards. The peculiar vocabulary they come up with is a showcase of their creativity and imagination —valuable qualities that are hard to come by via conventional education.

 

團隊計劃透過好玩的紙牌遊戲,向有關組織、學校、學習、評估中心及家長推廣互動語言教學。創辦人McBride教授強調不會推出電子版,因為遊戲涉及的面對面接觸對兒童發展十分重要。她多次提到小朋友玩「碰碰卡」時不要怕錯,即使組合出意義古怪的詞彙也不應介懷,因為這反而是創意的開端。
