Why did you create this innovation?
This initiative was born from the creative mind of a 9-year-old boy, Nicolás Alavconi (co-founder), under the concept of being the first university for boys and girls where they have the possibility of exploring technology, learning about the future, that everyone can do what they like and can even teach and share experiences with other children their age. Make online education possible.
How does your innovation work in practice?
GeniU works focused on creativity and innovation, technology, empowerment and socio-emotional relationships in boys and girls. We have various modular programs that are developed on our online platform where children gain experience and build a career in any of these areas: digital content creation, programming, music production, illustration and animation, magic and creative writing. The classes are live taught by creative guides who are leaders in their areas, with support videos (microlearning) and a personalized and gamified monitoring system. Here, children are rewarded for each achievement, attempt, or even error, encouraging their ideas to take them to action under our Zero Gravity methodology. We also apply a principle of collaborative economy, where we add disruptive teachers who can generate content and programs to help them recover from the Covid impact and have a platform to offer their courses and classes.
