The Creators

mIKs-it is built with love by a diverse team of experts and co-created with children and their grown-ups.

Supported by Research

The joy of learning starts with curiosity.

How can we give children with different abilities a safe way to digitally interact with their daily life?

The imaginative team at Heder asked Trendwolves to help test and validate mIKs-it with a group of families. Meeco then developed a prototype to enable the children to have a real mIKs-it experience.

Our research included children with different abilities, their families, carers and educators.

After two studies, with children under eight, our big question was, “should we build mIKs-it” and the answer was “yes!”

"There is a movie of our son and his father in which he watches himself riding a bike. He likes that. If he watches the movie he always makes the gesture of cycling. So that's nice. He's starting to learn some things from it. So that's great to see"

Bea, mother
from mIKs-it research
"Through mIKs-it children can find a better connection to their own reality and strengthen their inner self. An important developmental task for young children."

Gabriel, children's psychologist
from mIKs-it  research
"Looking at pictures is very important for toddlers, even babies. We ask parents to bring pictures of family members and familiar faces. This makes the children respond positively..."

Farah, day-care worker    
from mIKs-it research
"Through mIKs-it, more connections can be made with the child. You  are able to speak about the parents and about the child. Children will benefit from this. It’s easier for them to show things in their context.”
— Xavier, children's therapist from miKs-it research
