Children diagnosed with diabetes type 1 are bombarded with information and have a hard time understanding it all. Existing information material consists mostly ofbrochures and textbooks, giving little opportunity for testing and trial-and-error without consequences. A social platform with learning games gives the children an opportunity to experiment and find peer support, which is important for coping with a life long disease.
