Sydney, Australia, June 25, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Skwirk, one of Australia's leading providers of education resources, has announced the launch of a new series of home education tools. These tools offer home educators useful, reliable lesson resources. They make learning accessible and inspiring, while ensuring that students make clear, continual progress.
"We are delighted to announce the release of our new home education tools," said a company spokesperson. The Skwirk team developed these new products in response to increasing demand. Over the past four years, homeschool rates have increased by 65%, according to a recent report published in the Sydney Morning Herald. So, more and more parents had been approaching Skwirk, looking for appropriate resources. This comes as no surprise, given Skwirk's outstanding reputation for the provision of excellent education tools. More than 20,000 teachers and 280,000 students use Skwirk all over the world.
In Australia, the company's resources are designed specifically with the Australian curriculum in mind - and this includes its new home education section. There are ample options for students of all ages - from kindergarten to year 10 - and for a variety of subjects, from the history curriculum and the English curriculum to the maths curriculum and the geography curriculum.
Skwirk's home education resources are available in the same way as the parent subscription option. Users simply sign up, pay an annual fee, and have access to thousands of resources. These are incredibly varied, such as exciting animations that are sure to get children interested and work sheets that can be downloaded and printed.
For home educators, this means two things: firstly, having access to tools that make flexible learning possible. Whether students learn visually or kinaesthetically, their needs can be met easily and efficiently. Secondly, serious peace of mind, in that all of Skwirk's resources have been created in line with the Australian curriculum.
In addition, assessment and reporting needs are also taken care of. As students complete each unit of work, they can undertake rigorous testing, to ensure that they are progressing as expected, and to find out which skills or areas of knowledge need work. As any home educator knows, thorough assessment strategies are essential to a student's development and to ensure that he/she is preparing adequately for the future. With Skwirk, there's no second guessing - everything is beautifully organised and easy to navigate.
