- Apie op Digifari - The "Apie op Digifari" project aims to introduce multimedia in preschool (kindergarten). The idea is to deliver a complete set of devices and an exhaustive program with guidelines for the teacher, for one week : tablets, cameras, screen, beamer and Kinect, and access to a website to gather and share the results of an inspiring week in which a very special monkey on a digital safari arrives in the classroom, and stays for a week. The activity program sticks close to the educational goals for preschool children (age 4-5). Teachers learn how multimedia can facilitate learning!
- Ben de Bever - The 'Ben de Bever' project for K12 aims to provide children with an attractive game, in order to adopt the right habits when it comes to tooth brushing. The game can be played at home or at school. At school, teachers refer to the game and sing the game song in the classroom. Tooth brushing is part of their courses on health and well being. A study demonstrated that children became much more motivated thanks to this game.
- Edutablet - EduTab is targeting three concrete goals to achieve this: identification of opportunities in terms of digital teaching aids; further development of the most interesting of these opportunities, spread over three relevant domains (mathematics, languages and physics); and practical implementation in a living lab of schools with a different level of digitization.
