Learn-Now was established in 2002, with Ministry of Education eLearning research and development funds.
Its roots began in 1997 and later became an award winning programme for its style & outcomes. In more recent years, it's been further endorsed by several MOE reps, including ERO, principals, tertiary sector 'shoulder taps' and this year, by teams as far as Asia.
Initially, it was similar to being an online school - it had its own teachers, curriculum, resourcing and students (and unlike schools - its own research base).
Now, while it'll maintain its learn 'now' ethos, it moves into a phase which partners with the Sustainable Development Goals with the UN - within 'KidzClubz'. That's its programming base - and the creatively interactive factor we facilitate for the kids.
