Creating delightful and educational tv

~Thank you so much Edutopia for this opportunity to share~

Our aim is to create a children's series which will inspire a love for sciences and to encourage respect and appreciation for others and the earth.
We hope to raise the funds to produce a show that will expose young children to basic scientific facts in a format that will be enthralling and appealing, to not only children but the whole family (in the same vein as MacGyver and Voyagers from the early 80's)
We hope that this will make learning accessible to those with limited access to or interest in schooling .
Please Watch the link below - it's FAB!

Though this is not my campaign specifically, I know that I for one grew up learning to love books with Reading Rainbow, so it is a cause very near and dear to my heart!

LeVar Burton has a Kickstarter to get a web-based database of the video field trips from the show (which was on until 2009! who knew!) along with thousands of children's books and teacher materials for use in the classroom and home!

Pretty neat, and I thought others might be interested in resurrecting a childhood fave for a new generation!

Technologically Rich Educational and Entertaining platform

Hi there!

So excited to share with everyone the news about ScoopyTV! ScoopyTV is now crowdfunding on Indiegogo to create the first interactive and entertaining educational platform for kids!

We have created a concept that incorporates high end technology that kids are used to with the childish humor they use in order to create a relatable, entertaining and educational character kids and parents love!

Our goal is to create a platform that will feature dozens of 3D high quality technologically oriented videos featuring Scoopy that will provide children with hours of entertainment during which they will learn valuable skills and lessons.

Scoopy TV was created out of a need to provide children with quality content and programming that speaks the technologically rich language they have been brought up in.

Please take the time to show your kids Scoopy on YouTube:

In many countries of the world, investing in education is not considered a priority. Even if it is well-known that the first years of life are fundamental for the development of people, the investment to guarantee to children the right to quality infant toddler centres and preschools is very small. Still today, people working in schools with children, especially young children, are forced to self fund its own professional development. The vision of investing in education for very young children is a benefit for every community, yet a reality for few. It is then important to create the possibility for educators, particularly when coming from disadvantaged contexts, to access to quality education. Support the campaign!

High school teacher @ Green School Bali

Hello everybody,

I work at a pretty cool school called Green School. We're located in the middle of the Balinese jungle and we study inside bamboo made buildings. We're an international school but we have a scholarship program that provides Indonesian students the opportunity to study here.

Trying to give continuity to this program, our students decided to figure out a way to help these scholars for when they graduate from here. Whether they decide to start a business or go to university, we want to help. In order to do this, we created a crowdfund campaign on IndieGogo. But, instead of implementing a traditional method of raising money for charity, we turned it into a whole enterprise project. Taking advantage of the reward system of crowdfunding, the students created a wide range of products that showcase their skills. So, even if they weren't a recipient of the fund, they would still benefit from the exposure of the campaign. We treated it as a business, we hired children and even gave them a salary. It works as our little enterprise. Our goal is to raise a million dollars. We will later turn that into an endowment fund that can produce an available grant that will help the Indonesian students for years to come.
It's a pretty creative and original campaign. Well, at least I think so. I'm sure it will at least make you laugh.

For me, this was a very innovate way to prepare our students for relevant and real world success. I hope you can agree. So, please check it out! I'm confident you will like it! If you do, please consider contributing. But, more importantly, you would help us out a bunch if you shared us with all your network. We really need to get this going.

Here is the link to the campaign:

Thank you so much!
