Finland Math now available for schools in Belgium and the Netherlands

September 1, 2020

Eduten and Domo de Refontiro have entered into a partnership with the aim of making Finland’s most popular digital mathematics learning platform available for the Flemish and Dutch educational scene. This platform, called Eduten Playground, is a gamified and adaptive AI-based system that comes with a content library of more than 200,000 pedagogically high quality online tasks for students between the ages of 6 to 15.

Eduten Playground was developed at the University of Turku, which is one of the 1% best ranked universities in the world, in close collaboration with hundreds of Finnish teachers. It provides significant proven improvements to learning outcomes, teacher wellbeing and student motivation. It also decreases math anxiety. These benefits have been proven by dozens of peer-reviewed scientific studies over the past 15 years.

The platform not only saves teachers' precious time, but also offers opportunities for setting up highly differentiated approaches and even individual learning pathways. The teacher remains at the steering wheel at all times, and receives high quality learning analytics that help provide better support for each student in less time through scientifically proven exercises and an extensive content library that is available to all teachers.

Eduten Playground platform has proved its worth as a scientifically validated exercise platform by more than 13,000 Finnish teachers since 2011 and is also used in 40+ countries worldwide, including Hong Kong, Sweden, the United Kingdom, Australia, US, various countries in Europe, Asia and Latin America, and hence from now on also in Belgium and the Netherlands.

Henri Muurimaa, CEO, Eduten: “Together with Domo de Refontiro we ran an extensive pilot in 11 schools to measure Eduten Playground’s impact and usefulness in Belgian schools. The pilot ran very smoothly and we received wonderful results and feedback from the participating students and teachers. Domo de Refontiro is a great partner for us and we are looking forward to providing the benefits of Eduten Playground to many schools together with them.”

Christel Ruttens, CEO, Domo de Refontiro and Pieter Sprangers; Head Designer at Domo de Refontiro: “More than 1 ½ years ago we started an exciting journey together with our Eduten partners, curious about how Belgian school teachers and students would react towards the introduction of this wonderful digital AI-based math learning platform. We were struck by the excellent educational value of the platform and how the teachers and the students enthusiastically embraced it.”
