In the MR-piloterna we are human rights experts and we work to spread knowledge about human rights, not least the Convention on the Rights of the Child. We have used Loops since 2017 and, in collaboration with Loops Education, the University of Gothenburg and teachers and students at several schools, we have created two experience based teaching aids about the Convention on the Rights of the Child – The Rights Reporters (for 11-19-year-olds) and the Children’s Rights Detectives (for 6-10-year-olds). Both these loops, that are free for anyone to use, have been produced within the framework of the Swedish Inheritance Fund Project.
We can see many advantages when using Loops to spread knowledge about the Convention on the Rights of the Child in an engaging way and with student participation at its core. Our loops come in the shape of stories. Playing the role of rights reporters and children’s rights detectives, students follow a path where they acquire knowledge about the Convention on the Rights of the Child through films and different activities in Loops. They then examine how their school works to fulfil these rights.
Loops offers the opportunity to create interactivity in an exciting way, and features such as the possibility to listen to the text are important from a children’s rights perspective. We are very content and happy about our collaboration with Loops Education!
