Edutainment: what is it?  

Zoom in on this new form of entertainment in the form of media, games, toys and experiments, designed to educate while having fun, and to change the way we learn in an innovative way!

Edutainment: what is it?  

An Anglo-Saxon word based on the words “education” and “entertainment”. Edutainment refers to the process of introducing entertainment and playfulness into a cultural activity or an activity with an educational and/or teaching dimension.

We often think that education and entertainment don’t mix. However, Edutainment proves the contrary by combining these two areas to make learning more fun and therefore more enjoyable!

In what form? 

In the classroom, Edutainment takes the form of media, games, toys and experiences that combine fun and learning to motivate students.  

Teachers also use ‘gamification’ tools to create a more fun atmosphere for students. These learning tactics ultimately lead to better learning experiences and improved student retention.

Neo-One educational games 

NeoXperiences uses this same process to make learning easy and fun.  

A wide catalogue of interactive games allows children to develop skills in a number of areas while having fun: Mathematics, Geography, Foreign cultures, Marine environment, Preservation of the planet… 

The Abakus game, for example, has been designed to encourage a love of maths and make it easier to learn. The game puts players’ concentration and mental arithmetic skills to the test! It’s a fun way to get your neurons firing!

Clean the ocean helps to raise awareness among youngsters of the importance of preserving the oceans and marine animals. By joining forces, players must clean up the ocean and care for the animals. Realistic designs and eye-catching colours help players realise the importance of their mission and the positive impact their actions can have.

It’s an innovative way of changing the way we learn!
