LEARNING METHOD

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.

Coding
Our children will grow up to work in jobs that don’t yet exist, so they will need to find new solutions to new problems. Being able to combine creativity and logic into “creative thinking” is crucial for this. Learning coding teaches children logic, and learning this logic in the context of making, shows children just how powerful creative thinking can be!

Our games break the fundamental coding concepts down to their essential logic, and unpack each concept step by step. Each of these steps is put into the context of something creative – children make characters and backgrounds, choose story paths, sequence animations, and decide outcomes.

Language Learning
Hey Monster! is a functional and communicative approach to language learning. Our method is based on the Direct method of second language acquisition where children learn by being completely immersed in the target language.

Our program focuses on high frequency early words and promotes accelerated vocabulary acquisition through text, voice and picture pairings. Children learn vocabulary by making their own story worlds. They then engage again with the words they have just learned in the context of the stories they have just created. All target words are revisited in different contexts as the stories progressed for maximum comprehension.

THE Hey Monster! STORY
The Hey Monster! learning method was developed by Leah Hinton over her decade long teaching career.

ABOUT LEAH
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.
