@syauqy also come to encourage the student to learn something from this game.

Yeah, we using approach the “magic of game” to make these kids aware with their environment and start to keep their environment with put the garbage in the right place suitable to its specifications.

as we know,  the citizen and private mandatory must sorting the garbage, and the government must manage the waste.

However, this still can not be realized in most areas. Either because of inadequate disposal sites and communities that still lack awareness.It became one of the common cases that happened today. This is where we wanted to take part in the growing self-awareness from an early age to design a game that targets individuals who will shape society in the future, the young generation.

By means of using this media, more educational values ​​can be given. Education about the environment in this game will we designated the primary school age children (ages 7-11 years old).

Because according to Jean Piaget, children aged 7-11 years are cognitively concrete operational stage. In this stage, children are able to think logically and know anything based real idea or fact that is illustrated in graphics. Children are able to perform logical reasoning from what they see, to understand the concept of conversation, organizing objects into a certain class hierarchy (classification) and are able to put an object in a particular sequence (serialization).

In this game, children are expected to be able to understand the concept of selecting and disposing of waste in place based on the reality condition. This game contains elements of classification and serialization, where children are expected to be able to dispose of waste that fit with the type and threw it to the right place. Children will be easier to understand the concept of throwing waste in place according with what they see in the game.

In the process of thinking, at this age children are more likely to understand the concept if they observe directly through the examples given. As the concept of learning modeling revealed by Albert Bandura.

Albert Bandura explains that learning through the abattoir is one of the fundamental changes in the behavior of other people, individuals and indirectly studying changes in these behaviors. The process that occurs with model learning include the attention, retention, reproduction and motivation. This game will attract children attention how waste should be treated, then the child will remember it. Children will return to reproduce what was in his mind to dispose of waste in right place. Until eventually the child will be motivated to properly dispose of waste in accordance with the classification of types of garbage. In this game, hopefully the child will imitate what they do in the game, the pick and dispose of waste in place. The process of learning by using this model will be much more enjoyable and easily understood by children.
