Part 2: Method
In this video you will learn about the four corner stones of our learning method: Finnish education, language immersion, digital tools, and spaced learning. You will learn what these mean and how they are present in Moomin Language School.
Part 3: Solution
Now that you are familiar with the ground on which Moomin Language School is built, it’s time to delve deeper into the service itself. This video will give you a better idea of how the service works and what the content and curriculum consist of. It will also touch on the weekly themes and vocabulary, as well as the teaching of transversal competences in the service.
In this video you will get to know the online tools and how to use them. This includes creating and managing users and viewing the progress reports. We will also have a closer look at the lesson plans for the playful lessons, and how to start using the learning application itself.
Part 5: Implementation
In this final video we give you suggestions and considerations for organizing the daily use of the learning application and the weekly playful lessons. These suggestions are based on real-life experiences from our customers.
Extra: Home access
If the application is used at home, please make sure that the parents download the application as well. You can give parents access to the application by adding their email address to their child’s profile. This video shows you how to do this.
