The Cypriot company, which was established in 1990, is a pioneering learning design consultancy. It specialises in research and development of education technology and digital instructional content for kindergarten to grade 12 education. In parallel, the company conducts teacher professional development courses for 21st century learning and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) integration while running ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) and Computer Science after-school courses for local primary and secondary school students.
The company's product offered is a comprehensive online learning solution for teaching and assessing computing, digital citizenship, and 21st-century skills in primary/elementary education (grades 1 to 6). Each lesson is fully planned and supported by an end-to-end package of digital instructional content including detailed activity plans, illustrated presentations, student exercises, gamification guides, and formative assessments. In parallel, the digital learning and sharing platform enables the 21st century digital classroom with features including student digital portfolios, real-time project assignments and feedback, learning analytics, interactive assessments, performance benchmarking, and customised lesson planning.
The solution is scientifically designed to integrate a modern rigorous computing syllabus mix of algorithms, coding, computational thinking, ICT applications, information analysis and evaluation, online safety, privacy, searching the Internet, and digital storytelling, with social-emotional learning (SEL), creativity, communication, critical-thinking, collaboration (4Cs), leadership, accountability, civic literacy, and global awareness skills (21st century skills). The syllabus is fully aligned with major international curricula and standards including the UK National Primary Computing Curriculum, Cambridge ICT Starters (endorsed), the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) standards 2016, and the partnership for 21st century learning (P21) framework.
The company's solution practices a learner-centred and personalisation approach by prompting students to make their own choices. Its lessons follow an integrated model of inquiry with project-based learning in real-word scenarios.
The company is unique in its kind with deep 21st Century skills integration to the curriculum and the first to assess not only cognitive skills (computing) but also conative skills including self-awareness, handling conflict, interpreting situations, and effective communication.
The Cypriot company is looking for established educational distributing or reselling companies from abroad, which are currently active (or seeking to be active) in the instructional materials sector, in order to cooperate within the frame of distribution services agreements (exclusive or non-exclusive). The potential partners are expected to resell the Cypriot company's digital education product directly to their customer base, either in the global international schools market or/and the public or private schools market in English speaking countries.
