Welcome to Inventors4Change

Inventors4Change wants to provide children with tools, techniques and knowledge that let them invent the changes they want to see in the world. It consists of a network of schools and organizations which use Technologies for Creative Learning and Digital Media tools to foster Invention-Based Collaborative Learning among children from different countries. The project is particularly focused on children from underserved communities and children's inventions are inspired by Sustainable Development challenges.

Check the first presentations!


Some of the participating schools are already sending their first presentation projects. Below you can try and play a project uploaded by two students of Shanti Bhavan: Kishore and Subash. First of all Kishore and Subash present themselves, then they encourage us to play a game, and if we get out of the maze then they continue the presentation. The project is made on Scratch. Clicking the green flag runs the project.

Presentations


During the first two weeks the children grouped in teams will present themselves and their schools by making a Scratch project.

The idea is that children in India and Catalonia learn a little about their different contexts and realities, and begin to know each other before starting their collaborative work.

We will post the projects as they come in, so stay tuned!

3, 2, 1... Start!



We are pleased to announce that our pilot project is already underway. It will take place from October 2013 to January 2014. In this first phase there are four participating schools: two from South India and two from Catalonia (Spain). Each school has selected a group of students of different ages, and the organizers have designed mixed teams of children from India and Catalonia. Each of these teams uses Scratch to invent a story/game/animation collaboratively and related to a Human Development challenge.  

For details of participating schools you can visit the pilot section in our site.
