Google creates programme to help kids engage in fun & learning experiences
Beginning July 1, over the course of the following two weeks, there will be five assignments that kids can access on the Camp Google 2020 website, and Google’s social media page
Google has created a special programme called Camp Google 2020 to help kids engage in fun and learning experiences as they stay indoors due to the lokdown.
Beginning July 1st and over the course of the following two weeks, there will be five assignments that kids can access on the Camp Google 2020 website, and Google’s social media page, which will be accompanied by a set of instructions that will answer all your “how to” questions. Each of these assignments will also include elements that teach kids to stay safe online, with guidance on how to be a good digital citizen. We will also have sessions being conducted by leading experts in psychology, to help motivate the children and give them something to aspire to in these times.
At the end of the camp, children will also win the opportunity to attend a masterclass with the YouTubers themselves, have their prize-winning entries posted on Google India’s social handles and many other surprises.
Talking about the inititave, Sapna Chadha, Senior Country Marketing Director, Google India and Southeast Asia at Google, stated, "As a mother, I have personally felt bad that I can’t give my twins Aarav and Saanvi the summer they work hard for all year. The effect on our kids is more than ever -- their sense of familiarity has been jarred, with the reality of schools being closed, classes shifting online, and the summer break being curtailed."
"Is anyone else feeling extremely guilty? It's been clear that this is on the mind of many. Which is why this year, along with a few friends and experts, we have created a very special program to help kids engage in fun and learning experiences with Camp Google 2020 in India," she added.
