Features & Benefits
ZooWhiz encourages children to become
independent learners, building confidence with immediate feedback and enabling
them to self adjust their level of academic challenge. To build their zoo or
spend time in the Arcade they need to manage their coins carefully, giving them
room to develop self-discipline and learning autonomy. Parents of children with
PREMIUM subscriptions and teachers of all children can use custom content
selections to focus on childrenís individual learning needs. Teachers can also
use custom content selections to focus on learning outcomes for an entire
The educational design and content,
software engineering, animations and graphic art that underpin ZooWhiz are of
the highest professional standard. This outstanding quality ensures that
ZooWhiz works as a seamless, integrated whole that allows parents, teachers and
schools to work together for the good of every child.
Children using ZooWhiz start by creating a
FREE Zoo Keeper account for use at home or school. Teachers can also create
FREE Keeper accounts for the children in their classes and these too can be
used at home or school. FREE Keeper accounts are portable from class-to-class
FREE Keeper accounts give children Free
Play access to the full range of the educational content in ZooWhiz both at
home and at school. However, home access is limited to a set number of
activities each week. Parents wanting more motivation, more weekly activities
and more powerful tools to see how their children are progressing and the
ability to create content selections customised for their child can upgrade
their childrenís FREE Keeper accounts to PREMIUM Zoologist accounts using a
low-cost subscription model.
With a child being able to use the one
ZooWhiz FREE Keeper account at home and
at school ZooWhiz creates an integrated learning environment that harmonises
the support from both these environments for the good of the child.
Every time a child (FREE Keeper or PREMIUM
Zoologist) completes an activity, the results are recorded in the Central
Result Vault. The Central Result Vault uses Intelligent
Recording to differentiate between results of activities completed during
free play and results of activities completed in custom content selections
(created by either parents or teachers). This allows greater flexibility in
reporting, so that teachers and parents can see how children are progressing in
the context of the content selections they created! The Central Result Vault
also consolidates results, allowing parents and teachers to view each childís
progress as a whole, no matter where or when theyíve answered the activities.
