Climate for Children is a prototype of multimedia interactive presentations and games for interactive boards in classrooms, to involve elementary and high school children in the climate change awareness process and teach them about the impact of their everyday actions on the world’s future. Climate change is one of the most critical issues of today. At stake are recent gains in the fight against poverty, hunger and disease as well as the lives and livelihoods of billions of people in developing countries. The presentations in Climate for Children use different sets of data making learning easier and more exciting. Combining open data from the World Bank and the Human Development Reports’ databases with new technologies such as interactive boards, teachers can improve students’ experiences by intensifying the emotional energy in the classroom. Students interact with the content for a specific country they care about, and discover how to help in solving a particular problem. Combining a rich learning environment with traditional classroom settings and group activities, interactive boards boost creativity, encourage collaboration, and move away from a teacher-centric to a more personalized learning. Climate for Children aims to mobilize children from early ages to social responsibility and enables teachers to enrich their lessons using the latest technology.
