In early 2015 we were in a meeting with the Latin America ChildCare leadership, discussing our plans for General Council. In discussing our booth, someone commented that it would be really great if we could have a interactive type of experience. At that moment I recalled the books I loved as a child, the choose your own adventure style. Every couple pages there would be a decision the reader would have to make, “if you go left turn to page 37, if you turn right go to page 48.” I would mark each decision with a finger until I had none left to turn the pages so I could go back and reconsider any ill fated choices. Out of that memory came the idea for “A Day In The Life.” We decided to create a “choose your own adventure” event that would allow visitors to our General Council booth to experience the real life choices that children, parents and teachers have to make every day in Latin America. We chose four true stories and used them for the base of our app. It was a HUGE hit and it’s now been made available online. Top up your cup of coffee and Click Here to give it a try. Be prepared for some difficult circumstances and don’t worry, you can always go back to the beginning and start again! Let us know what you think.
