Explore Gooseberry Planet for FREE in your school

We love online safety.  That’s is why we are offering every school a free trial

A comprehensive Online Safety & Safeguarding toolkit for the whole school community

Gooseberry Planet is an award-winning software platform, which is designed to educate children, teachers and parents about the dangers online through game-based learning. In other words, we offer a fully interactive and engaging game platform from which children can learn to use the internet responsibly and safely. The software is intended to be used both in schools and at home: it offers a child-centered and coordinated approach to safeguarding and is totally unique as it also offers an assessment and monitoring system for both teachers and parents. Gooseberry Planet consists of three portals that work alongside each other:

Gooseberry Student allows your students to play our engaging game and learn through consequence. As they play their reactions to ‘real life’ scenarios are recorded. There is also a workbook that compliments the game and creates a conversation with the teachers and classmates. The feedback from Students has been very positive, to the point where in some schools (who have relaxed their mobile phone usage) the game is being played during break times and out of school.

Gooseberry Teacher works with Gooseberry Student; this allows the teacher to monitor the class whilst playing. The software will show if a student isn’t responding in the correct manner. The key is highlighting who is potentially vulnerable. The Gooseberry Teacher platform is also full of resources, including workbooks, teacher plans, handouts and much more.

Gooseberry Parent allows the parent to see how their child is reacting within the game. The system emails the parent every time their child finishes playing a scenario. The resource area is full of tips and advice for the carer to learn and be part of their child’s learning journey. It also gives hints and tips about different aspects of Internet safety.
