Law & Citizenship Edu-Cube for Children & Teens : Beop-Sarang Cyberland & Solomon Law-park
Ministry of Justice

A. Problem Analysis

 1. What was the problem before the implementation of the initiative?
■ Background - South Korea’s Ministry of Justice has been operating ‘Solomon Law-park’, an off-line participatory education center for teens since 2008, as well as developing and operating ‘Beop-Sarang Cyberland’ a participatory educational website for child and teens from Dec. 2011. - After a national tragedy ‘Sewol Ferry accident’, the future leading generation, child and teens faced law & citizenship crisis. Thus, from Aug. 2014, the Ministry of Justice began to provide customized integrated service (by age), LCE(Law&Citizenship) Edu-Cube. ■ Difficulties before the launching of Beop-Sarang Cyberland(’11). - The Ministry of Justice has been operating Solomon Law-Park, off-line participatory education center for teens. However, the number of participants were limited due to constrained space, thus it faced difficulty on expanding LCE education service. [Preschoolers] - LCE program for preschoolers(0-10 years old) did not exist. [Elementary students] - Even though schools provided regular LCE programs, contents to catch children’s interest were not enough. [Junior to High school students] - Even though schools provided regular LCE programs, contents to catch students’ interest were not enough. - Limited opportunity for drop-in education course because of Solomon Law-park’s constrained space. [LCE teachers] - Even though schools provided LCE textbooks, lack of interesting contents to catch students’attention made it difficult to excel LCE education’s effectiveness. - Although the drop-in education program ran by Solomon Law-park exists, limited number of students who could participate and transportation cost made it hard to expand the service. ■ Difficulties before Law&Citizenship Edu-Cube(‘14) started. [LCE teachers] - Each Solomon Law-park and Beop-Sarang Cyberland provides various contents and programs, yet lack of communication caused difficulty in applying LCE. - Solomon Law-park and Beop-Sarang Cyberland asked for separate participation to its users, resulting unnecessary correspondence effort. [Participating children and teens] - Solomon Law-park and Beop-Sarang Cyberland asked for separate participation to its users, resulting unnecessary correspondence effort. - As Solomon Law-park and Beop-Sarang Cyberland began to provide various contents and programs, children and teens could be confused on deciding which contents to use. [Ministry of Justice] - As Solomon Law-park upgrades its program to strengthen the educational function, number of programs that overlaps with Cyberland grew, resulting the operation expense to increase. - Since Beop-Sarang Cyberland started to expand education contents and programs for children, teens and adults, the website’s identity became ambiguous. - Although ‘Sewol Ferry accident’ caused children and teen’s law & citizenship crisis, the Ministry of Justice could not find the effective solution to resolve it.

B. Strategic Approach

 2. What was the solution?
■ Establishment of Participatory Educational Website, Beop-Sarang Cyberland (2011-2013) (background) Lack of LCE (Law&Citizenship Education)’s social base. - Unlike U.S.A., UK and other advanced countries which private sector plays a leading role in providing LCE (Law&Citizenship Education), South Korea’s private sector plays insignificant role in providing LCE. - Ministry of Justice has been operating Solomon Law-park, an off-line participatory education center since 2008. However, it faced difficulty on enlarging the service to more students. ※ Although school violence became a major social issue, the effective preventive education program did not exist. (Proposer) Law&Order Advancement Planning Division - Recognized the need for reinforcement of law&citizenship and democratic awareness through expert consultation. - Discussed participatory educational website which includes educational games and videos to provide opportunity to experience law&citizenship and democracy to anyone, at anytime, in everywhere. (Solution) Develop Participatory educational website, Beop-Sarang Cyberland - Establish program development plan by cooperating with game development and cyber-education expert groups. - Manage financial resources by private sector’s support and cooperation. (NH bank and General Insurance Association of Korea) - Promote character donation from private sector to develop child-friendly contents. - Develope participatory education program(Beop-Sarang model school). ※ [Toddlers Zone] : Teaches basic social order, sharing and caring. (e.g. clean neighborhood, safe commuting school and police on the street campaign) ※ [Children Zone] : Teaches democratic citizenship, basic facts about the law, civic duties and rights by using quizzes, games, action-learning, animation, etc. ※ [Teenagers Zone] : Teaches traffic order, safe driving and constitutional rights by driving games and detective animations. ■ Establishment of customized integrated Law&Citizenship Edu-Cube (2014-present) (background) ‘Sewol Ferry accidednt’ and Children&Teen’s law and citizenship crisis - After a national tragedy ‘Sewol Ferry accident’, the future leading generation, children and teens faced law & citizenship crisis. ※ Sewol Ferry accident : Korea’s Sewol Ferry capsized on April 16th, 2014 (among 476 passengers, 294 dead, and 10 passengers are still missing). Grown-up’s iniquitous system caused death of high school students who listened and followed orders. - After ‘Sewol Ferry accident’, the idea that following the law and order will result in ‘one’s loss’ spread through the society. Nevertheless, teenagers’ law&citizenship and trust in government started to shake. ※ Public survey on ‘Faith that the government would protect me when in danger/crisis’ Before Sewol Ferry accident 46.8% ➜ After the accident 7.7% (the Hankyoreh 2014.08.20.) (Proposer) External expert groups & Law&Order Advancement Planning Division’s manager - While external expert groups and Law&Order Advancement Planning Division were seeking for development plan of Beop-Sarang Cyberland, a participatory educational website, segmental and overlapped education service provision method were found. - To overcome children and teens’ law&citizenship crisis after ‘Sewol Ferry accident’, external expert groups and Law&Order Advancement Planning Division chose to reinforce customized LCE (Law&Citizenship Education) program. (Solution) Provide customized integrated education service through Law&Citizenship Edu-Cube - The Ministry of Justice integrates an off-line participatory education center, Solomon Law-park’s service with on-line participatory educational website, Beop-Sarang Cyberland’s service to provide customized LCE by age group. - The Ministry of Justice enlarges Collaborative LCE to schools(Preschool, Elemenatry school, Junior High and High school) based on customized LCE by age group. - Restructure Solomon Law-park to be specialized in Off-line education and Beop-Sarang Cyberland to specialized in Online education service as well as increasing participation and efficiency on advertisement by integrating user data base. - The Ministry of Justice proceeds to enlarge collaborative LCE with private sector(Youth welfare service agency, Private education agency, web portal) based on Law&Citizenship Edu-Cube.

 3. How did the initiative solve the problem and improve people’s lives?
(1) Online-Offline Blended LCE (Law&Citizenship Education) Program Developer & Provider - To overcome the limitation of web-based educational games and learning experiences, Offline LCE education develops the program to use and apply in drop-in course. (2) School-based ‘Learning by Doing’ LCE (Law&Citizenship Education) Program Developer & Provider - Through partnership with elementary school and junior high school, combine contents and education programs from Solomon Law-park with regular school course, implementing LCE. (3) Public-Private Collaboration Platform for LCE (Law&Citizenship Education) Program Diffusion - Collaborate with private sector on developing and spreading LCE educational contents. (4) Children & Teen-customized Integrated LCE Service Delivery System Development - Integrate and connect services from Solomon Law-park, an off-line participatory education center and Beop-Sarang Cyberland, a participatory educational website to provide customized education service by age. (5) Children & Teens-friendly LCE (Law&Citizenship Education) Contents (game, web-cartoon, animation) Provider - Develop and Provide Children & Teens-friendly educational contents based on Korea’s advanced IT, game industry, animation industry. (6) Provide participant-friendly incentives for promoting Children & Teens’s LCE program. - Based on MOU with a private NH bank, the Ministry of Justice launched ‘Beop-Sarang plus savings account’ (2014. 4. 17). Provide special interest rate to Beop-Sarang Cyberland users

 11. Did the initiative improve integrity and/or accountability in public service? (If applicable)
■ Sustainability of Law&Citizenship Edu-Cube (1) Law&Citizenship Edu-Cube’s institutional foundation - Law&Citizenship Edu-Cube, including Solomon Law-park and Beop-Sarang Cyberland was initiated by Law&Order Advancement Planning Division following Regulations for Education Act(July.2010) and Support for Legal Education Act (Mar.2008) - The government has policy will to strengthen children & teens’s Law&Citizenship ever since ‘Sewol Ferry accident’ took place. (2) Law&Citizenship Edu-Cube’s financial foundation - Although start-up H/W installation and program development required public financial supports, only slight expenses are being used for updating contents and operational expenses once the system is set. - With Win-Win cooperation with private sector, expenses for developing new contents, advertisements and enlargement of the program could be saved. ■ Necessity and possibility of transferring Law&Citizenship Edu-Cube (1) Need for Law&Citizenship education in developing and underdeveloped countries - One of the common difficulty which developing and underdeveloped countries face is social cost due to low law-respect and citizenship. South Korea, a current member of OECD countries was once an underdeveloped country. Thus, Korea’s Law&Citizenship education experience could be a great lesson to developing and underdeveloped countries. (2) High transfer possibility of program, operation manual, S/W and know-how - If optimal IT technology H/W is ready, numerous contents, programs, operation manual formed in S/W format could be easily transferable. (Yet, some educational contents needs to be translated.) - Although it is desirable for Solomon Law-park to have facility investment, transferring programs are still feasible. It is important to know that educational materials, operation manual and know-how to start the program does not require much of transfer expense. (Note that translation of contents is needed.) (3) An OECD DAC country, Korean government’s willingness toward ODA - Ever since Korea joined in OECD DAC(Development Assistance Commitee) in 2010, Korea has been promoting ODA. - The Law & Order Advancement Division in the Ministry of Justice has signed a partnership with KOICA to help establish a law education center in Mongolia next year for the foreign nation’s legal advancement by providing online content and legal educational programs from Beob-Sarang Cyberland. (July 2013) - The Ministry of Justice thinks positively of exporting the Law & Citizenship Edu-Cube to underdeveloped and developing foreign countries as part of an ODA project. (4) Intranational attention toward Solomon Law-park and Beop-Sarang Cyberland - Japanese law-education society(such as, education organization, association and expert groups) visited Solomon Law-park for five times between ‘12~’13. - Beop-Sarang Cyberland case study presentation at 2011 G4C(game for change) Festival, New York University, USA. - Beop-Sarang Cyberland case study presentation at Comparative International Education Society conference 2013. - Beop-Sarang Cyberland case study presentation at Good Game Show Korea 2013. - Case study presentation about utilizing Beop-Sarang Cyberland as elementary school violence preventive program at Education study society in 2012. - Case study presentation about utilizing Beop-Sarang Cyberland as elementary school violence preventive program at Korea Educational Research Association in 2013. - Case Study presentation about Law&Citizenship Edu-Cube to Korean policy study association.

■ Shift supply centered paradigm delivery system to user centered paradigm based service delivery system. - Major problem of government and public institution’s service delivery system is that they insist on supplier centered, produce-and-deliver system. - To shift produce-and-deliver service system from supply centered to user centered system, innovative activities are needed to overcome previous work practices. Cooperation with different departments, practical service delivers and private sector for enlarging the service are required. ■ Cooperation with the Ministry of Education, schools, and teachers to relate LCE to regular school curriculum. - For effective L&C education, cooperation between the Ministry of Education and local education office who are in charge of school education are required. Nevertheless, education experts and teachers’ participations are needed for improving study guides and lesson plans. - To initiate ‘Beop-Sarang school’project, ‘local education office’s task force conference’, ‘Selection of program model school’, ‘Workshop for related personnel’ and ‘Operating and spreading education program’ discussion process was needed. ■ Win-Win cooperation with private sector to expand LCE. - The Ministry of Justice provides Cyberland contents to private portal sites↔ Private portal sites develop games and donate to Cyberland. ※ Junior Naver( : Korea’s top children’s website which has 1,500,000 visits per day ➜ Cyberland contents provided in Junior Naver (9,600 per month) - Provide the Ministry of Jutice’s Cyberland contents to private digital education firms ↔ Improvement of user accessibility without extra cost by utilizing private digital education networks. ※ i-Scream : top digital textbook company for elementary school, 99.8% of elementary school teachers are using this website. (130,000 visitors/day) ※ Chunjae eduction(T-sherpa) : Top textbook provider. Provide free web based teaching-learning center for teachers. ■ Adopt Blended Learning method to integrate Online-Offline education curriculum. - Provide the new Online-Offline Blended Learning L&C education service to overcome online education’s limit (low concentration and education effects) and offline education’s limit (difficulty on expanding the service). - Utilize Beop-Sarang Cyberland’s Online Contents in Offline classrooms. - Develop education programs that relates Online Beop-Sarang Cyberland and Offline Solomon Law-park. ■ Use of experts for creative problem-solving. - Legal experts play major roles in LRE(Law-related Education). However, to implement effective LCE(Law&Citizenship Education) for children & teens from various age groups, use of expert groups are the crucial key for the success. - To catch children & teens’s interest, game and animation experts are needed to develop various educational contents. - Policy and system development specialists are needed to shift provider-based service delivery system to user-based service delivery system.
