UNICEF launches interactive digital brain development tool for young children

children-brain-developmentUNICEF and H&M Foun­da­tion launch an inter­ac­tive dig­i­tal brain devel­op­ment tool for young chil­dren (press release):

A dig­i­tal tool that inter­ac­tive­ly shows how games and play stim­u­late brain devel­op­ment dur­ing ear­ly child­hood launch­es today. The inter­ac­tive UNI_FORM ‘jack­et’ was cre­at­ed by the H&M Foun­da­tion and UNICEF as part of a new UNI_FORM cam­paign to help pro­mote ear­ly child­hood devel­op­ment.

The UNI_FORM tool, which aims to visu­al­ly trans­late neu­ro­science for par­ents and care­givers across the world, dis­plays how young brains devel­op at year­ly stages up to the age of five, and pro­vides fam­i­lies with inno­v­a­tive age-appro­pri­ate play ideas that can help opti­mize brain devel­op­ment.

The jack­et reveals dif­fer­ent cog­ni­tive games that feed the brain as it evolves with the child´s age. The games are tai­lored for each age based on UNICEF’s research on ear­ly child­hood devel­op­ment…

On www.theuniform.org, adults and chil­dren can inter­act with the UNI_FORM and at the same time sup­port the right for every child to get the best start in life. Dur­ing the ear­li­est moments of life, children’s expe­ri­ences have the pow­er to shape the devel­op­ment of their brains as much as their DNA as neur­al con­nec­tions take place at a once-in-a life­time speed of up to 1,000 per sec­ond, form­ing their cog­ni­tive, social and emo­tion­al devel­op­ment.”
