We definitely recommend schools and parents to try Moovkids - you will see how important the changes are and will love it.

Que-Dung PHAN found MoovKids:
  • Significantly improves behaviour or wellbeing
    Children in our kindergarten - with the implementation of Moovkids activities were able to move and develop their skills each and every day, no matter what the weather was. One particular case that really impressed me: kid of 2yo were too well-protected in their family and always came to school in stroller. But after around 10 weeks, his skills were really improved and he loved to move so much he refuses striller that mom/grandma offered
  • Significantly improves teacher knowledge and skills
    Our teachers were not aware of the importance of basic movements taught right. After being trained about the impact and seeing changes in children, they are now convinced and happy about it.

Pedagogy

Certified by Education Alliance Finland

EAF Evaluation is an academically-backed approach to evaluating the pedagogical design of a product. EAF evaluators assess the product using criteria that covers the most essential pedagogical aspects in the learning experience.
Passive
Active
The solution gives the teacher complete freedom to lead their lessons on how they see fit. There is a clear focus on what and how to practice and what the objective is. The videos are clear and the dual format, child/teacher guidance is a great dimension allowing for versatile use.It is up to the teacher to interpret the activities how they like. For example, they could incorporate elements of other curricula (like drama, for instance) into the activities.
Rehearse
Construct
The activities are fun and accessible for all kids of all genders and creeds. The solution offers a progression of difficulty, as well as difficulty within each activity. This means that teachers can start teaching very basic movements (like ducking, hopping, etc.) in isolation, and then do the activity (duck to dodge a rope) which keeps it interesting and challenging for the children. The program gives a good outline for objectives, and teachers are encouraged to give positive feedback.
Linear
Non-linear/Creative
he teacher is free to explore and use the content as they see fit. There is no need to unlock content, it is all there from day 1. They can explore it with their class in any order. Special needs are well addressed so it is possible to differentiate the activities according to your class.
Individual
Collaborative
The solution allows for children to progress individually via observed task. Students can act autonomously, but only within the confines of each activity. Children are encouraged to collaborate on certain tasks. Also, teachers have the opportunity to take on skills to teach to use the pre-curated visual guidance available, allowing for better end quality and correct postures and alignments in movement skills and body form etc.
