The project is based on storytelling and its great advantages within a virtual world. Stories based on the information to have an adequate diet since childhood, constructing an excellent immune system to prevent diseases. We used critical, computational thinking, innovative design and created effective digital materials to solve problems.

Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

It is based on research and creation of digital content such as Storytelling were the food groups, a balanced diet and the benefits of a good diet are represented creatively when preventing and/or facing diseases, taking advantage of the advantages of these digital resources such as:

Provides students with motivation, fun, curiosity, and attitudes conducive to learning.
It helps to establish connections between the contents and to organize the information.
Promotes a host of values ​​to work on in the classroom.

Develop social skills like active listening and empathy.
It allows children to pay more attention and obtain a higher level of concentration.
It creates a bond between the teacher and the students, facilitating more fluid communication and more two-way interaction.
It favors a relaxed and participative work climate.
Stimulates the creativity and imagination of students.

The project will be presented using an application called Co-spaces where it allows the creation of experience within a virtual world where a story based on storytelling is developed through characters that will have situations with characters, based on food and disease prevention.

There will be a fun demonstration of how to eat healthily.
