Kid@Bizz is a short project in which children age 8-12 create a business- or actionplan they thereafter organize or carry out.


My Machine

MyMachine is run by 3 different age groups: in primary schools children invent a 'dream machine'.
At high school level design students/engineer students develop a construction plan for the selected 'dream machines'.
At seconary level in technical education students work with the construction plans to build the machine.


My digital me junior

My Digital Me Junior (MDM) is a free to use digital instrument which enables young students (age 10-14) to reflect about their owned competencies, through various class-bound and individual activities.
The students are challenged to search voor competencies and skills they are already good at. They work with these skills and competencies to further improve them.
Every student has to register and create his own digital portfolio on the platform. Teachers or other project coaches (club trainers, parents,...) can, on demand of the student, confirm or deny the fact that the students has the skill/competence that he/she claims. Of course, the student has to proove this first through action.


Talentenstage

Talentenstage is a short term event in which young students, aged 10-14, are challenged to take over a real-life job in a real company.


The Dreamfactory

The Dreamfactory consist of a series of 9 different themes within the learning by doing concept.
Doedel is the Dreamfactory mascotte which accompanies the childeren in all themes and is recognizable for the whole school.
9 themes:
Kindergarten 1 (age 3): Doedel de Ontdekker (Doedel the discoverer)
Kindergarten 2 (age 4): Doedel de Dromer (Doedel the dreamer)
Kindergarten 3 (age 5): Samen sterk met Doedel (Originally based on K-6 Ourselves)
Grade 1 (age 6): Ga je mee aan de slag met Doedel (Originally based on K-6 Our Families)
Grade 2 (age 7): Werk je mee aan een toffe buurt? (Originally based on K-6 Our Community)
Grade 3 (age 8): Bouw je mee aan onze droomstad? (Originally based on K-6 Our City)
Grade 4 (age 9): Ga je mee op stap in onze provincie? (Originally based on K-6 Our Region)
Grade 5 (age 10): Trek je mee door Europa? (Originally based on K-6 Our Nation)
Grade 6 (age 11): Kid@Bizz    (see also specific separate description as this program can also run separately from the other themes.)

Every theme is based on 5 or 6 different lessons with the organisation of an event at the end of the lessons, creating the possibility for teachers to implement entrepreneurial teaching in the classroom.
The 9 themes are all based on the courant curricula for primary education and have the same end goal: create possiblities for entrepreneurial behaviour.
Focus from Vlajo is on guiding the teachers, not the students, by means of a clear manual and further digital guidance and train-the-trainer workshops.
