Gutenberg 3.0 Fnd was established with the aim to develop a digital educational tool that strengthens Bulgarian children’s functional literacy.
42% of Bulgaria’s 15-years’ old are functionally illiterate (PISA, 2016). We develop an innovative tool (Knigovishte) that supports children’s reading competencies. The tool is to be used at school and in the free time. After reading a book, children fill in a quiz that verifies their understanding of the read material, and earn points. While their classmates also use the tool, they start competing who has gained more points (i.e. read and understood more books), thus turning reading into a fun, cool thing. Knigovishte builds upon also an element that supports media literacy&civic education.
