Samsung KalimaLock

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Digital Design / Mobile Interaction & Experience / 2016

KalimaLock: The first smart device padlock that teaches Arabic one lock at a time!
In the GCC, English has become the language of choice in schools, homes & everyday communication. This has directly affected children’s abilities to read, speak & write in Arabic fluently.
To encourage children to learn Arabic, Samsung created KalimaLock, an app that can be downloaded onto your child’s smartphone/tablet.
It locks access to the device and to unlock it, your child must first learn a word in Arabic. IIt'll teach them how to write and pronounce words in Arabic as well as what they mean.
