OUR LEARNING PHILOSOPHY
We teach through digital story creation. When a story is wrapped around a learning concept, it becomes more engaging for children and helps them understand it in more depth. We take this one step further by involving children in the story creation process. This incredibly fun and creative approach gives children ownership over their own learning. It helps them understand the power of knowledge and the joy of learning.
Our learning method was developed by elementary school teacher Leah Hinton over her 10 year teaching career. It was refined in consultation with numerous teachers and subject specialists, and with the help of children and parents around the world.
Creativity and problem solving should be embedded in all learning.
Our apps involve kids in the story-making process.
Limited and purposeful screen time for young learners.
Stories are designed for 10 minutes play time.

THE Hey Monster! STORY
The Hey Monster! learning method was developed by Leah Hinton over her decade long teaching career.
Leah did her teacher training in New Zealand and spent 10 years in international classrooms. Her teaching strengths were language and music, and her passion was coming up with new ways to embed creativity in learning. She spent 5 years at a leading IB school in Berlin where she developed and delivered a Digital Arts curriculum to help the school embed technology into their classroom programs. It was here that she realised that technology was the way to make fun, creative and and highly interactive language learning available to children around the world.
