A app for kids to make communication between kids and social worker easier
About this project
We will develop an app that can be used in family departments in municipalities. The app will be used as a tool in children conversation between a social worker and child. The purpose of this app is to raise the yield of children conversation and help ensure the child’s voice. The app must be aimed at children aged 3-8 years. The idea that the universe and the elements of the app must be recognizable for the child and used to visualize the reality of each child, identify the child and family resources and help to articulate the child’s hopes and dreams about the future. This provides a social opportunity, to be able to understand the child’s outlook on his life and in this way open up for deeper conversation about family, home, worries and so on. The app thus becomes a kind of own tale, in frames that are playful and adapted to the child’s world . The app strive that children are heard and understood through words and pictures. Thus meet the child where it is and in the forum it is accustomed to, ie on an iPad. Our goal is initially to the project being tried in a pilot municipality for example. Viborg Municipality. If there are good experiences with the project and it proves to be successful, we will implement the project in several municipalities. Our success criteria for our project is that all social workers in family departments feel better equipped to make a children’s conversation, and get a higher yield of children conversation by making use of this tool.
Risks and challenges
The big risk and challenge is that we are only 5 people and one developer so he is gonna get busy, our goal is to finish the app before end of summer
