The REDIT project addresses the needs of newly arrived migrant children in Finland by providing them with a language learning game to support their learning of Finnish or Swedish. Learning the language of the host country enables immigrant students to communicate with their peers and teachers, to have opportunities to learn in integrated classrooms or schools, to access higher education, to understand their rights within the community, and to have a broader range of job opportunities.
Digital learning games have been used to enhance a variety of outcomes, including language acquisition, motivation, and student confidence. They are able to provide immediate feedback, differentiated instruction, and a safe environment for students to practice the target language. The actual content of the game will align with the Finnish curriculum, so that teachers of immigrant children can incorporate it into their lessons.
