Playing the Giant Ladder Snake at the Creative Ramadan Islamic Boarding School with Pasuruan Orphans
Various efforts can be made to campaign for the positive use of the internet. One creative way is to hold a snake ladder educational game. As was done by Yatim Mandiri Pasuruan and TIK Pasuruan Volunteers, on Sunday (05/19/2019), located at Al-Hikmah Foundation Jl. Plaosan 725 Kersikan, Bangil.
The activity was assembled in the Creative Ramadhan (PRK) Islamic Boarding School program which was attended by 21 orphans assisted by Yatim Mandiri Pasuruan. ICT volunteers use the game Healthy Snakes and Ladders. This game was chosen so as to attract PRK participants to better understand how to wisely surf the internet in a healthy manner.
Snakes and ladders is a game that is no stranger to the community. Besides being fun, this game is quite easy. Uniquely, this time the ICT volunteers provided a giant snake-ladder board, so that the players could put their feet in the snake ladder board boxes. Not surprisingly, participants who were participating in the PRT enthusiastically stopped by and joined the game.
According to the Head of the TIK Volunteer Pasuruan, Bahruddin, in the game in the form of a giant ladder snake contains positive messages on each box about healthy internet. Among them about how to overcome the dangers of negative internet content, tips on activities using children's social media, to anticipate hoax news. Besides being able to play an educational game, participants also get prizes for those who succeed in winning it.
"In an effort to support a healthy internet movement, we innovate by packaging in the form of educational games. So the hope is that many people are enthusiastic," said Bahruddin.
This activity is also supported by online media wartabromo.com, which is also one of the media partners of the Pasuruan ICT Volunteers. (*)
