Simple K12 help motivate, inspire, and enrich more than 600,000 teachers per year. In turn, these teachers are also there for each other. They are all in the same boat. They stay up late and get up early. They grade papers in the car. Make lesson plans while making dinner. Email parents while folding laundry. Run the school newspaper while watching ballet practice… and SimpleK12 gives them the ideas and support they need to never give up.
Write. Touch. Swipe. Pinch. SMART interactive displays, whiteboards and collaboration software are so easy to use, they’re second nature. Out in the schoolyard students tackle all sorts of imaginative projects together. SMART encourages that same back-and-forth interaction inside the classroom and beyond.

It’s a sad reality that only 1 in 5 children get a bedtime story on a regular basis and, although children are traditionally taught in the daytime, knowledge and fact-based learning is most effective in the 90 minutes before sleep. The home has three times more impact on a child’s learning outcomes than school but supplementary learning can be expensive. Getting the learning right at home, is key to a child’s future but often parents don’t have the tools or knowledge to be able to be effective teachers themselves.
This is why Dream Learners’ stories are so beneficial for everyone in the family. After extensive research they are developing a multi-platform library of magical, animated story experiences that broadly cover the curriculum and are optimised for safe use in the 90 minutes before bedtime – the best time to learn. The magical learning stories and accompanying resources are aimed at children aged 3 – 9 to use on their own, or for maximum learning impact, with a parent. Dream Learners are constantly expanding their library of stories and resources.
