Go-Givers launch new 'Consequences' tool
'Consequences' is a new decision making game that has been launched on the Go-Givers website. Children are faced with a difficult situation and to deal with it they can choose from several different options. The decision they take will lead them to a picture showing them what might happen, and possibly another decision, with the aim of helping them to realise the consequences of their actions.
The tool provides an opportunity for children to learn important lessons while utilising their skills and knowledge of PSHE, literacy and ICT, together with their creative and critical thinking skills. They not only create their own stories, complete with choices, decisions and consequences, but can also photograph the scenes they need and upload these to the Go-Givers website.
This interactive web tool was piloted in a primary school and was such a great success that it even featured in the Sevenoaks Chronicle.
One year five pupil from Sundridge and Brasted primary school said, 'The whole experience was so cool, it was like a game. It has taught me to be careful and think my decisions through.'
The class teacher said, 'It was a different way of thinking about their actions.'
The head teacher said that she was 'delighted with the high level of thinking and ICT skills demonstrated by the years 5 and 6 children'.The children's work can now be seen at www.gogivers.org/consequences
