    Can learning be fun?

    For sure it can! StoryZoo has created a fun new series called “Bewegend Leren” (Move and Learn). Children can enjoy the Dutch pilot series either at school or at home. Each episode features a different theme, such as ’shapes’ or ‘colours’. The young audience learn new words and widen their vocabulary while being asked to stand up, move their arms, jump or do a crazy dance and repeat the words.
    Recent studies show that physical activity activates the brain, heightens cognitive function and is correlated with improved academic performance.

    Our feedback has been overwhelmingly positive as the videos are a great tool for teachers in a time when digital learning has become more and more important. The series is now being dubbed in to several different languages, such as English and German, in order to attract a wider audience.

    Thanks to Gynzy!

    Disney Channel Benelux has licensed 10 newly produced episodes of the ‘StoryZoo Adventures’, this time with an outer space theme. The episodes will be shown on Disney Channel in April in the Netherlands and Belgium. In this series the familiar StoryZoo characters take a rocket to space.

    The three StoryZoo characters Bax, Toby and Pepper learn about planet Earth and how sunlight influences day and night time. The episodes take us to the moon. We also discover the planet Mars and get to know different planets in our solar system. The StoryZoo animators have created fun new designs and animations depicting the journey through space in the StoryZoo rocket. “The real-life images literally take these StoryZoo adventures to a higher level, the images and exceptional ESA film material are exciting and absolutely unique for young and old” says Johannes Gropp, founder and CEO of StoryZoo B.V.

    Learning English in Dutch schools has never been so much fun!

    So nice to see the kids interacting with the English StoryZoo lessons and to see them picking up words like “yellow”, “butterfly” or “ladybird”. Sitting in the last row of the school class (kids from 5-7 years = Group 3) I witnessed enthusiastic and responsive kids that loved the interactive lessons and could not wait to solve the games and questions on the smart boards. We worked hard the last couple of months with experts from primary education to fine-tune our product and now we are ready for an international roll-out. We will offer some 50+ lessons, according to the school curricula’s, with topics such as “Vegetables”, “Colors”, “Instruments”, “Recycling” or “Seasons”. Each of our lessons include a lesson plan for the teachers, interactive questions, touch screen games, coloring pages and all that considering the diversity of the kids. More information?

    Agendatip | Familiedagen | StoryZoo | Van Gogh Museum | 15 t/m 28 oktober

    Tijdens de herfstvakantie vinden de speciale Familiedagen in het Van Gogh Museum plaats. Er is dan elke dag van alles te beleven in het museum en alle activiteiten zijn gratis.

    Een bijzonder onderdeel van deze Familiedagen is de samenwerking met het programma StoryZoo, een educatieve animatieserie waarmee kinderen spelenderwijs Engels leren. Als het magische boek ‘StoryZoo’ opengaat, komen de vrolijke figuren Toby de Aap, Pepper de Papegaai en Bax de Beer tevoorschijn om samen de spannendste avonturen te beleven. De serie wordt onder meer uitgezonden op RTL Telekids.

    Het Van Gogh Museum heeft in samenwerking met StoryZoo vijf speciale afleveringen geproduceerd waarin Bax, Pepper en Toby de jonge kijkers mee nemen door het museum langs Vincents beroemdste schilderijen om hen wat leren over zijn leven en kunstwerken. Deze vijfdelige reeks wordt tijdens de herfstvakantie uitgezonden in het museum zelf en op Telekids en krijgt een permanente plek op het onderwijsplatform Van Gogh op school.

    Als aanvulling op de afleveringen is tijdens de Familiedagen in het Van Gogh Museum een speciale StoryZoo-speurtocht te doen. De kinderen worden mee op avontuur genomen door de karakters van StoryZoo om meer te leren over Vincents kunst. Bovendien kunnen ze beter kennismaken met Bax, Pepper en Toby en is het zelfs mogelijk om in het museum met de figuren op de foto te gaan. Tot slot verschijnt er een speciaal ‘StoryZoo in het Van Gogh Museum’-boek, dat onder meer in de webshop en gedurende de familiedagen in het museum verkrijgbaar is.

    De speurtocht en meet & greets vinden plaats van 15 tot en met 28 oktober. De meet & greet vindt elke dag plaats tussen 10.30 uur en 12.00 uur, de speurtocht is de hele dag beschikbaar. Meer informatie over het totale programma is hier te vinden.

    Wij zouden het heel leuk vinden als jullie dit mee kunnen nemen in jullie (online) agenda en jullie zijn uiteraard ook zelf van harte welkom om de karakters uit StoryZoo in het Van Gogh Museum te ontmoeten!
