Attention, sport ahead!
Thanks to LÜ, a digital teaching tool, teachers save time and pupils learn while having fun. Combining physical activity and intellectual learning: the key in this Belgian primary school to motivate pupils and prevent them from dropping out.

"We have to find the right balance between digital learning and learning in real life.
Daphné Piette - Director
At Paradis des Enfants, the playground is shared with goats. An idea that anchors the children in the real world.
But the main concern is to give the students a voice in the digital context, to find new ways to make them feel good in the school environment. The teaching team is actively looking for different pedagogies, more adapted to the very rapid evolution of society, which schools often struggle to integrate.
With this in mind, Diego Molina, a sports teacher, has proposed the use of LÜ in the classroom...with success.
"Tablets and children are inseparable in 2021. We have to face reality and work with it. And so here, the concept brings the child into a video game system where he must be physically active. We will also be able to work on subjects that are usually only studied in class, such as mathematics, history or geography. By integrating them into the physical education class we are working on the child's complete and global development. And in the end, we found that the children were more involved."
