HAVE ANY QUESTIONS?
What do I need to attend your classes?
All our live courses are conducted online in small groups using cutting-edge virtual learning tools. Students will need access to a computer with a built-in microphone and webcam, as well as a strong internet connection.
Some courses require additional resources like pens and paper, however, our courses are designed with everyday materials in mind, especially stuff commonly found around the house.
Should a student be required to make use of a third-party tool like an app or website, steps on how to install / access the platform will be explained in our course welcome pack.
Can I change the dates / times of your classes?
All our courses are conducted live, therefore dates / times cannot be changed. We believe that by providing live classes, our students are able to actively take part in the lessons, ask questions and provide feedback. Once students register, they commit to completing the course on the days and times indicated.
Our courses are presented throughout the year – we encourage parents and students to keep an eye on our website for future dates if they are not able to complete the course on the stipulated dates / times.
How can I follow up on my child's progress?
All our lessons are recorded and sent to students / parents. We encourage parents to view the recordings. Parents are welcome to contact the instructor for any feedback.
How does payment and registration work?

After making payment, a course welcome pack which explains everything you need to know, including how to log in to our world-class learning platform and other fantastic resources will be sent to you.
What about the online safety of my child?
We create online learning experiences that are safe and empowering for kids. Safety and privacy are paramount as learning and creativity can’t happen unless everyone feels safe.

Our Future Thinking Captains answer students’ questions, and provide encouraging feedback.

MEET YOUR INSTRUCTORS:
FOUNDER | Google Certified Educator | Apple Teacher | Microsoft Certified Innovator | Edu-Innovation Speaker & Trainer
My education career stretches over 11 years. From being a principal, teacher, marketing manager and entrepreneur, I have always made it my mission to make a change in the lives of whole school communities.
I have always believed that education should not only be limited to the classroom – we should be pioneers in schools – innovators and game changers. Education is not only about what we do at school, it goes far beyond that – we should make a lasting impact through future thinking.
To me, future thinking involves creating captivating stories and showing the world what our learners and teachers are capable of. Education is not about quantity and traditional thinking, it is about quality and exploring new ways of teaching and learning.
Improving the quality of education by encouraging learners to become leaders in classrooms and motivating teachers to embrace change and future thinking is what drives me. I have worked with several international, as well as local businesses and schools over the years, making it my mission to elevate brands and education.
My passion is learners and teachers and empowering them through innovative thinking. My mission is to help learners and teachers realise their true potential, their creativity and passion. My goal is to open up a world of endless possibility for both learners and teachers through empowering strategies, which includes school marketing and education.
“The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.” -Steve Jobs
