ONE NIGERIAN ENTREPRENEUR, ADEBAYO ADEGBEMBO, IS TEACHING KIDS ABOUT NIGERIAN CULTURE WITH ANIMATED GAMES & VIDEOS.
Adebayo founded 'Genii Games', a company focused on promoting and preserving African cultures using technology, this was birthed when he noticed his niece as many children and even adults today was negligent as relates with local language.
Genii Games birthed Asa (which means culture in Yoruba). It is a growing collection of interactive mobile apps and web videos that aids the kids in the interactive learning of African Cultures. The Asa apps and videos uses different tools to deliver subjects that range from languages and folktales, to ethics and etiquette.
One of his applications, Adventures of the Tortoise, shown in the video above, uses interesting stories and games to teach morals and ethics, while the language apps, Yoruba101 and Igbo101, helps kids learn the Yoruba and Igbo languages respectively. Children, even speaking honestly, adults learn faster and retain knowledge relative to means of tutelage and in this case it is harder to forget something you can see, that is learning by seeing not just by reading; so this a totally welcome innovation for cultural preservation and knowledge impact.
