I would like to say that we live in a fluid and complex world. The pandemic, which deeply affected children's lives, caused many governments to increase the curriculum, so schools can meet the needs of a fast-changing world. However, expecting 'young brains' to reach older children's goals should come with practice. 4 years olds are still building their muscles, hence teachers should train them while supporting their learning through play.
In conclusion, through my research, I found not only a gap between the educational system and digitalization but also a gap between human capabilities and world expectations. Thus, my novel idea suggests bridging those gaps, through a playful physical movement, in a virtual space. This way, children can gain a cognitive thrive and enjoy exploring their world with confidence while they becoming global citizens.

I would like to thank the people, from all over the globe, who supported my research, during this year of crisis. It was a pleasure learning from each and every one of them.
And mostly, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Mr. Webb, a brilliant educator who contributed to my project, all along the way, with useful insights and inspiration, from the educational field.
I am also thankful to Adam Stark from MIMU Gloves, the innovative wearable musical instrument, who supported the first phase of the experiments. A huge thanks to Gilad Landau and Anat Varon-Monteta who contributed so thoroughly with coding, and for the talented Adam Kusha, for the perfect product design. Without you guys, it wouldn't be as powerful as it is. A big thank you to the amazing parents, and the children: Mila, Mary, Charlotte, Amy, Jack, Hadar, Omeri, Daniel, and Noam, who took part in the experiments and taught me a lot about their smart brains. I really appreciate it, without you, the research would not have been possible, especially under the Covid19 restructurings.
A warm thanks to my Israeli family, for supporting us during the second lockdown and beyond. And the biggest thanks ever goes to my one and only love - Amit, and my daughters Mel, and Lille, who supported me days, nights, weekends, and lockdowns with loads of baby tantrums and cuddles ;). And last but not least, The Imperial College and The Royal College of Art tutors and teaching fellows, who helped me flourish, within this challenging year.
