Healthy Kids through gamification
The project Healthy Kids through gamification is made in collaboration between Khora, Gladsaxe Municipality and University of Copenhagen. The project is funded by Erhvervsfyrtårnet Life Science – Healthy weight and aims to examine how the XR technologies, VR and AR, can be included in primary schools as a tool to increase movement in education.
In the past year, Khora has collaborated with both teachers and subject managers at Grønnemose and Bagsværd School in Gladsaxe respectively to implement XR technologies as part of the teaching. Additionally, Khora has developed God of Math, a math app that utilizes AR, geolocation and gamification to motivate the children to solve math problems while being active. At the same time, Khora, in collaboration with Leo Bilgrav from Learning & Innovation, has tested various methods and programs for incorporating VR in various subjects directly into the classroom.
