Children Learn Through Play
Playing provides children with the opportunity to access and explore their own imaginary world, aids them in developing identity and personality and helps to achieve social recognition among their peers. Children who independently solve tasks on the computer also train independence, which in turn serves to increase self-esteem. Through the handling of complex tasks, children develop strategic thinking as well as the ability to work in a team and practise coordination with others. Social and verbal competence as well as consideration, working with others, active listening and agreeing on rules help children shape interpersonal relationships. Many of the skills and abilities that are considered indispensable in our lives originate from experience gathered through play. Navigating a virtual world additionally improves spatial orientation and perception. Of course, games are also simply fun and fun plays an important role in the development of a child.
That is why Oloko addresses topics most relevant for 6 to 12 year olds in a way that is suitable for their age: playing, gathering experience, learning, interaction, problem solving, fun.
Oloko was designed on the back of a turtle, Oloko is a world that children can shape together.
Your child can choose a personalized avatar: a bunny, a dog, a horse or a cat as well as a user name (not a real name) for his or her avatar.
Apart from their own avatar, every child owns a house and a garden, both of which can be personalised with various furniture and plants.
Using an avatar, your child can move around anonymously, chat with other children and participate in exciting adventures.
Your child can fulfil various tasks in order to become a cook, a farmer, a gardener or a baker.
Additionally, they have the opportunity to offer their goods on the market or to trade with other players.
Children can play collaboratively by joining a group and working towards common goals. They can choose between the wise Deika, the creative Eka or the brave Zurak.
Oloko also offers many small competitions, which serve to promote the creativity of the children.
Besides gaming fun, the safety of your child is top priority for us. That is why we have implemented safety measures and adhere to certain guidelines. Within the Oloko family, we have a child welfare officer, a data protection expert and a large, well-trained team of chat moderators. Find out more here.
