Armidale, Australia (PressExposure) March 15, 2012 -- ZooWhiz.com, a revolutionary new FREE online learning system for kids, parents and teachers has just been launched by Senator Stephen Conroy, the Australian Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy at Presbyterian ladies College Armidale.
ZooWhiz covers maths, reading, punctuation, grammar and spelling for children aged 5 - 15. ZooWhiz is based on the UK and Australian curricula and correlates closely with English-speaking countries and other countries where education in English is required.
Senator Conroy was most enthusiastic, "ZooWhiz is absolutely fantastic! It's about fun and learning online; it's about a journey of discovery that flows between school and home! ZooWhiz is a great programme that challenges the traditional divide between school-work and home-work. It represents a new face of learning made possible with high speed Internet!"
Tony Windsor, the local member of the Australian Parliament, congratulated the staff of ZooWhiz for creating such an innovative and vital programme saying, "I'd like to congratulate ZooWhiz.com for embracing the technology of tomorrow, today."
Richard Torbay, the local member of the NSW Parliament commented, "With their innovative approach EdAlive has made a significant contribution to the development of education software and have been leaders in the field since 1987."
Mr Philip Jones, Director of School Education New England Area, was very upbeat saying, 'I particularly commend the learning relationship ZooWhiz enhances between home and school'.
Kids, parents and teachers can use the power of ZooWhiz.com completely FREE. Just like Skype and Google there's even more power and fun available with the totally optional Premium subscriptions. ZooWhiz.com has been designed to motivate kids to learn. With ZooWhiz.com kids can work on their computers online at both home and school.
ZooWhiz.com gives teachers and parents the tools to identify and respond to each child's learning needs. It draws its educational content from a bank of over 17,000 carefully-crafted, finely-incremented learning activities covering maths, punctuation, spelling, grammar, vocabulary, phonics and reading for kids aged 5 to 15.
Kids today expect their world to be connected through the Internet. With ZooWhiz.com the work they do at home is all consolidated into the same set of results that are instantly available to them, their teachers and their parents.
ZooWhiz.com uses high quality digital art and animations to harness kids' love of animals and games to create a highly motivational environment that recognises that each child's learning needs are different. Even the activities themselves have humorous twists and engaging content to keep children on task! The extraordinary, multi-faceted range of educational activities and rewards in ZooWhiz.com ensures its educational and motivational appeal. The very design of ZooWhiz.com is focused on rewarding kids and reinforcing their learning. Kids just keep coming back again and again to ZooWhiz.com!
