The Order of Malta runs a number of day-care centers in Vilnius for over 100 children aged 8 to 12. The Regine Sixt Children’s Aid Foundation DRYING LITTLE TEARS has financed teleworking devices for eight of these day-care centers. The monitors, webcams and microphones are used for group activities with the children, distance learning and remote teamwork between daycare centers.
In addition, the technology supports the day-care center employees in staying in contact with children and parents if the child cannot attend the day-care center due to various restrictions. This makes the work of the employees easier and improves cooperation with parents and the other day-care centers.
The children are very happy about the new technology and the many new possibilities. In the first assignment, the children were able to take part in a virtual workshop for all daycare centers and learn how to make bouquets from different materials (paper, modeling clay, etc.). The children delighted their teachers in their schools with the bouquets they made themselves.
