Ask the children
Once, during the moderation of the "PEREZAVANTAZHENNIA" project, the creators asked me for advice on how best to form a budget, what cost items to include: laptops, netbooks, or tablets? To be honest, I was confused because it's more comfortable for me to work with a laptop, but how do I know what's convenient for the younger generation. So my answer was: ask the children. And I'd successfully forget about it because for several years I was the moderator of educational projects on the crowdfunding platform. Meetings/correspondence with the authors took place almost every week, and this was probably the strangest question I received. Later, Olesia and Olia, the authors of the "PEREZAVANTAZHENNIA" project from the city of Yuzhne, told me about their first experience of crowdfunding at one of the educational events. It turns out that it was my answer that prompted a change in students' attitudes. When teachers asked the children what was best for them, the students became actively interested in the project.
