Kanimuni- Game Design for education

Kanimuni, an ancient game in Assam, involves a blindfolded player searching for insights through the surrounding. This is the name chosen for this project proposed under Design Innovation Center. It symbolizes our efforts to facilitate the young minds in adverse surroundings with educational tools. This project promises to create various learning opportunities with playful environment.

Proficiency in English, Mathematics, Computing, and Science (EMCS) has significant impact on economic opportunities in India. Students who are socially backward, or live in remote areas or have weak financial condition miss on many career opportunities due to lack of proficiency in EMCS. This project aims to build interest and confidence to learn EMCS in such students through physical and digital gamification of education. This project will focus on creating educational games from learners’ perspective rather than teachers’ perspective.
