The Danish Company Savivo launches an Educational Indiegogo Project
The Danish educational company Savivo launches an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign (Find preview of the project here) to fund an innovative learning project. The Mingoville Fun Clock App and #EduWatch is a unique educational idea that combines online learning with real practice.
“We have been working for a decade in the field of primary digital education and we have noticed that at this young age children forget things really quickly. But if they learn by doing, the memory retention rate is up to 70%. That gave us the idea of completing the learning process of how to tell the time with the Mingoville Fun Clock App and with a real watch,” says Savivo’s CEO Stephan Stephensen.
As visual memory is very important for children, the Mingoville #EduWatch is specially designed to look like the clock in the Mingoville App, so children can make the connection between what they have seen in the app and the physical watch on their wrist. This also completes the natural process of learning how to tell the time with the Mingoville App and practicing the newly acquired skills with the #EduWatch.
Indiegogo and Education
With the launch of this Educational Indiegogo Project, Stephensen’s goal is to show that Edu games and projects can and should be as successful as entertaining games and high-tech gadgets.
“Indiegogo is already a popular crowd-funding platform for different gadgets and games, that are very successful. We want to prove that the Education section can compete with high-tech projects too. After all, since everyone cares about children’s education, what better platform than crowd-funding?” says Stephensen.
Learn and Play Now!
All the contributors for this project are rewarded with access to the Educational Games right away. The perk levels start at only $3, but no matter how much is pledged, there will be at least one digital game for every contributor.
“We believe our project has a worthy cause: promoting digital education. That is why we are happy to support it and give our games away. And we hope our contributors and fans will join the pledge too!” says Stephensen.
The #EduWatch comes in a variety of colors and the Indiegogo price starts at $25, whereas the expected retail price is $50. The goal of the project is to fund the production of the Mingoville #EduWatch, which is specially created for children. It is ready to handle the daily challenges of the playground: it is shock-resistant, waterproof (3ATM) and tested for Nickel allergies. The watch has a fast wrap strap, so even the youngest kids can easily put it on.
“We have the designs and prototypes ready. Now we just need to fund it!”, says Stephensen.
