Learning Material

In the context of the EIT Climate-KIC Young Innovators programme we are using two types of tools, the New Shores, an online social simulation and the EIT Climate-KIC Visual Toolbox. Each tool is described below.

The New Shores Social Simulation 

The  EIT Climate-KIC  Young Innovators 2020 Cyprus consortium will be using the “New Shores”, an online social simulation aimed at 12-18 year old students that can be played in a classroom or remotely. This facilitated simulation offers a unique opportunity to participants to learn through the  individual and collective actions to run an isolated island to a sustainable future or its demise. In stage 1 of the project, teachers will have the opportunity to get familiar and experiment with the online social simulation. In stage 2, the game will serve as an introductory activity where students will be called to play the game collaboratively exploring the different pathways to a sustainable future and understanding the barriers to effective climate action.

The EIT Climate-KIC Visual Toolbox

The  EIT Climate-KIC  Young Innovators 2020 Cyprus consortium will be using the EIT Climate-KIC Visual toolbox resources for systems innovation analysis.  The visual tools help to facilitate the students’ understanding of complex real-world problems such as climate change, energy or food, and come up with creative solutions for them. By following the system thinking approach for understanding the multiple aspects of a problem, visual  tools help to tap into the student’s creativity to innovate.  The Visual Toolbox consists of  five tools but the following three will be used: The Pentagonal Problem, The Context Map, The Cover Story. In stage 1 of the project, teachers will have the opportunity to get familiar and experiment with the  EIT Climate-KIC Visual toolbox resources. In stage 2 of the project, students will be called to work collaboratively, utilizing the Visual toolbox resources in order to identify and understand  the different aspects of a local problem and propose the most sustainable solution.
