Our Courses

For Students

This course is delivered in story form, using fictional characters to address real life scenarios children may face when using the internet and social networks. It is delivered in a way children will understand and relate to as we follow the lives of Tom and Chloe as they navigate their journey with technology and the choices they face along the way.This interactive course can be used as a buffer to mirror situations children may face, different dangers children may encounter, choices they may need to make and the importance of thinking before they act.

For Teachers

The Internet can be a wonderful place for kids to learn and have fun. It has become a constant companion in the form of desktops, tablets and mobiles and can be likened to the pen and paper of our time. Children are the pioneers of the internet of the future and the habits they learn as a child will form their future use of the internet and their perception of positive or negative behaviour. Teachers play an ever increasing role in this learning process Teachers themselves, did not grow up with technology and therefore have a steep learning curve.

For Parents

The internet is now part of our lives and is essential to how we live today. However, the internet can also be a dangerous place, especially for kids. Children are the future of the internet and how they use the internet growing up will decide how safe and positive it will be in the future.As parents, it is important that we ensure good online habits for ourselves and create a protected environment for our children to grow and enjoy. With ever-increasing issues around cyberbullying due to online peer pressure to look or behave in a certain way.

Read Better Program

What good is it teaching students HOW to read if they never WANT to read? We teach children WHY to read. As a parent, you probably have never had to tell your child to watch television… And you’ve probably never had to tell your child to play a video game… So why should you have to tell your child to read? Reading should be so enjoyable that children choose to do it in their free time because they love it. The more excited a child is to read, the more likely they are to read. And the more they read, the better they get. Research shows that the frequency of time spent reading for pleasure is one of the greatest indicators of how well a student performs in reading. And reading is the key to success in all areas. We are proud to partner with CyberSmarties because together we believe that building positive habits in young children is essential.
