Boosting innovation in Education aims at promoting social transformation and sustainable development and these meetings are key events to understand first-hand the best practices when speaking of ICT education projects.
On the very last day of Virtual Educa Argentina, we met Belén, a young girl who came to visit our stand. At jp.ik stand, we had displayed our devices as usual and we were welcoming some visitors who wanted to learn more about our projects. A young girl with a big smile entered the stand and went straight to our devices.
In a flash, that big smile faded away! Belén tried to turn on jp.ik tablet, MOVE S101, but with the excitement, she did not switch the device on. We went to her rescue and as soon as the screen lit up, the young girl’s eyes lit up.
What happen next was in one single word, INSPIRING! Belén grabbed the stylus pen and started to draw. In literally a couple of minutes, a Manga character was born and our jaws dropped! This is the result of Belén’s first drawing in a tablet! Yes, it is true! This was her first experience!
”” Trying this tablet for the very first time was amazing! Once I turned the device on, I started searching for the application that would allow me to draw.”
Who is Belén?
“I am 14 years old“and I live in Buenos Aires, in Argentina. I am in the 1st year of high school, preparing to be a bachelor’s degree with orientation in Visual Arts.
I love drawing Manga because it has a part of fantasy and does not have to resemble the realistic anatomy. This kind of drawing allows me to be more creative with my ideas, creating new characters, stories and comics.
Trying this tablet for the very first time was amazing! Once I turned the device on, I started searching for the application that would allow me to draw. I tried to use the pencil on the tablet and my drawing came to life. In my free time I love drawing, listening to K-pop music, reading teenage novels and I love everything that is related to Art. When I grow up, I want to continue studying Visual Arts and dedicate myself to graphic design.
Thank you, Belén for reminding why we do this; who do we do this for; and that we are doing it right and for the “right reasons!”
