Roxxane - Educational material
Roxxane, will gather a selection of jewels found in internet for education purposes. Will also create a database for PDF books for kids, adults and everyone to read.
Even if Froggy does not get to be created, a site with educational material will soon be released as a continuous starting point for the main foundation, with the name of Roxxane.
Thanks for naming our pet, Tanis.
Every human being has social needs: the stronger the nuclear family, the more confident and meaningful its members become. There is safety in numbers; that's why human are gregarious, communicative beings.
Froggy - The Social Network for Kids aims to become a service for kids and parents, where one can safely create and develop a healthy environment for you and your kids.
The mechanics are simple: Froggy is an origami marionette that tells 5-minute fables. The stories will slowly integrate with historical events that, grow by themselves (through interaction). However, they have an unknown beginning. Knowing children's mind, they tend to go back to the parents for feedback or they roll-up a story. The exercise will help identifying what your kids have in their minds, while parents and specialists in education share their thoughts and will suggest different values, to fix into the stories; so the parent could identify similar ideologies and understand how other mind processes take place, organically allowing the creation of constructive relationships between families with similar values and, actively creating consciousnesses of other people's perspective.
The stories will provide behavioral (moral) structures to interact with. You could interact with this structures to help yourself designing better "what if...?" Situations.
The only way to interact with kids within the platform, would be through this fables, keeping them safe at all cost. The way to get further interaction with a family is if, by mutual agreement, the parents share their contact with each other.
Emil Durkheim points at the existence of different belief systems (the Durkheim method for sociology), to suggest that stories and symbols got born to provide social cohesion.
There would be two separate pages for the service: one for kids and one for parents. The Kids Portal only activates with the parents' key.
Suggesting stories and voting develops the stories. The stories will:
. Make your kids laugh! Your kids invest time in their stories and see them grow by their own imagination.
. Teach ancient mythology. One traditional myth a week (like Greek, Chinese & Mesoamerican myths) and one kid story. Nothing is taken for granted, you say when a story if too rough. However, you can expect sweet and sensible stories, based on real life experiences.
. Strengthen your family creativity. Not only your kids, or even people without them can get sensible too. Your own human development, is what comes next. Never underestimate what you could learn from the incredible creative minds of kids.
Origami pets stand as a cultural gift in themselves, to which we will contribute. Fables give attitude and personality to animals, naturally suggesting animal protection and awareness. Kids could upload their own marionette shows and create interesting material, while parents resolve any psycho-philosophical inquiry.
The program will launch in English. Soon after Spanish, German, Portuguese French and other languages.
