Expect a 6 year old to respond to the same software as a 16 year old? We don’t. Our unique
Activprimary software has been designed with teachers especially for the 3 to 12 age group
- and matched to their curricula.
Giant on-screen snakessss and ladders make for more enthusiastic young add-ers, as do
random rolling dice... hide and reveal... colours... sounds... coins... on-screen rulers...
Or sail down the Amazon... play word games with poets... create a potion... measure the
angles on the Pyramids... all in one morning... with an older class.
But fun is also highly functional. Thousands of teacher-designed tools, images, and
flipcharts help you bring lessons to life as never before - with all your resources in every
subject to hand, at the touch of a button. Along with email, internet, video, audio...
On-screen menus that are (literally) child’s play let even the least confident users create
and find what they want. And save it, tweak it, re-use it or share it just as easily.
Teachers asked for a sound recorder to add pre-recorded sounds to their images, or to
record and play back the voices of their class. So we added one. They talk. We listen.
And, of course, everything is operated by our unique mouse pen - following the advice of
experts who believe children’s writing is best developed by using a pen from a young age.
It’s already won widespread support - including the World Didac Award in 2004 and 2006.
Or in the words of one 10 year old enthusiast, ‘If you got rid of it,
I’d want you fired.’ (Thank you, Connor.)
