Syrian refugee children in Norway, that is, Mustafa Monzer Falafa (9), Raghad Alhaj (6) and Khadija Alhaj (7) were shown this Mobile game app and the game was tested. In that app which is a computer game, mini monsters are fed with correct letters and words and thus the monters are grown up, and the players read Arabic sounds loudly and letters are said during the games.

According to recent estimates almost 2.5 million Syrian children are out of school because of conflict. Many have to cope with traumas and high levels of stress, which also affects their learning ability. High availability of smartphones among war-affected Syrian families can be a means for reaching children with engaging and fun learning supplements. This can help facilitate their continued learning and future reintegration into school. The Norwegian government is considering developing the app into other languages.

  1. I don't understand the point of this "app". I assume there are enough people from the refugee community who would need/love the job of teaching children in Arabic. The challenge would be in teaching the children Norwegian in order for them to integrate in society.

    1. Admin did NOT inform you correctly about this app. This is a new aid measures that make it possible for children to learn to read, where schools are bombed, teachers and families forced to flee. With help from the world's top gaming operators has Norway developed two educational mobile games that can be used wherever the children are. NOT for children living in Norway, they already go to school. These syrian refugees we see here was trying out the game.

    3. Thank you Louise for giving uas this information. Like this it makes sense and seems to be an interesting and needed project. Being a mother myself it hurts me to think how many children have to suffer miserable circumstances in so many places on this planet. Every young hild is so proud when they start going to school. Every child is so curious and wants to learn. Education is a human rigth.

    5. Okay, it's to use where children are in a war zone, not in Norway? It seems to me if circumstances are so dire that there are no schools or teachers then a lot more help is needed than an app - and where do the devices to play the apps come from? Well meaning but maybe too high tech.
