Nigerian educational technology company, 9ijakids in partnership with SafetyChic, has designed a game,’Safety CheckUp’ to equip children with the knowledge of safety as they return to school.
This is an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19 , as government has approved the resumption of schools after months of lock-down .
A recent social media survey on school resumption revealed that over 60% of parents will not allow their children resume at a physical school.
The reason given being that parents are not sure of adequate safety of the children in school.
Speaking on the solution,Vice President of Global Business Development and Co-founder of9ijakids, Titi Adewusi said that ‘Safety CheckUp’ provides children with safety tips that will complement government and schools safety guidelines.
“With this game, both schools and parents can ascertain their children’s safety readiness and take action to equip them with practical tips to ensure they comply with safety guidelines for staying safe in a pandemic .
“Children can actually learn the safety requirements such as: handwashing, social distancing, mask use and others in a fun and most entertaining way.
“Students will also be able to earn points and move up a leaderboard which makes the game very engaging and interactive”.
Safety Checkup is designed for children between ages 5 and 13 and can be accessed on 9jakids Safety Checkup Game – 9ijakids
