How does Muuvit work?

Overview

At Muuvit the children gather through movement points with which they can make a virtual journey around the world. This world contains content relevant to education and can be embedded, for example, in computational, technical or English teaching.

Some 250.000 children from 6 countries and 9 languages ​​have completed the program this year. But it has to be embedded much better in the everyday school life of the teachers, so that the students do not realize that they are currently in a movement program.
