Engineering - a point of difference...

Ask about our Engineering Programme for 8-13 year olds. We're taking the thought that coding needs to be learnt to the next level... Engineering:

“Engineers are people who design, construct, and maintain structures, materials, and systems while considering the limitations imposed by practicality, regulation, safety, and cost.” Wikipedia

AEO About Us.jpg

Wink Learn-Now's the award winning programme run by Registered NZ Teachers & Tutors. Learn-Now was first established in 2001, informed by experience with online teaching since 1997.

Learn-Now's been evolving its global elearning, financial literacy and compassion programme ever since. It helped establish what became the leading student-based portfolio for FreshAz Education (though formerly known as AEO Ltd - 'Authentic Encounters Online' earlier). Late 2016, we've invited to create a very specialised 'Like Minds' programme known as KidzConnectz - but watch this space for more on this, mid Term 1'ish 2017.

Making an Impact

Connecting Impacting Collaborating


Students aim to make an impact in the lives of others. They join projects and learn how to create, contribute to and facilitate their own.


Students connect with people 'in the field'. This ranges from people in other countries guest experts, or students in other schools. At one point, we took an interest in Anthony (12) in Uganda (right), and funded a water tank in a nearby Ugandan village in need.

SmileGlobal and Digital Citizenship is at the Social Inquiry heart of Learn-Now. So too, are concepts of Pay it forward, and working with and for each other (not for the teacher). Students experience scenarios to live and breathe, including participation in community projects. With all they learn so what, what if and what now are challenges. How can new skills or slices of knowledge impact others, or further develop themselves...?

Learn-Now students, 'front up for impact' at an international level, again.

Solar Lamp.png

It all started with a shoe box full of gifts for a kids' first gift ever - at Christmas.

This year, it extends to enrich and impact at a whole new level.

How? Getting up to 10,000 solar lamps into poverty stricken villages.

...and managing what comes from a form like THIS. (Fill it out if you'd like... smiley).
