Microsoft Education and Muuvit start cooperation

Education innovation through physical activity and technology

The goal of Microsoft and Muuvit is to create activating, participatory and engaging experiences for the classroom. This will help teachers to inspire students to get active and enjoy learning in a new inspiring way combining technology and real-life activities.

Cooperation will start with Skype in the classroom - integration onto the Muuvit platform. As a result, the Muuvit classes in Finland and in different countries can communicate with one another, to undertake virtual field trips or to interview experts and guest speakers in various fields.

"Muuvit´s underlying goal is to make the school day active and fun. Thanks to the cooperation with Microsoft Education we are able to combine physical activity and the joy of learning even in a more innovative way. With Microsoft and Skype in the classroom we start to build active bridges between our classes from the Arctic Circle to Copacabana. ": says Muuvit Health and Learning's Managing Director Mika Merikanto

Marianna Halonen of Microsoft Education continues that: " The cooperation with Muuvit is a great example of how technology can promote children's physical activity, learning and international networking.“
