Gooseberry Planet is excited to announce the launch of 3 new apps purely for the schools market, teaching online safety in a completely unique way. The launch of the three new apps, Gooseberry Student, Gooseberry Parent and Gooseberry Teacher marks the beginning of a new journey into the education industry, working to educate as many students, teachers and parents as possible about how to be safe online.
We are working hard to create a network of schools, institutions, parents and students that are all working together to make the online world a safer place. The ever growing virtual world can be a scary place and we feel that this is something that is extremely important to learn about considering how young children are when they start using online resources, Gooseberry Planet’s new apps are aimed at the PSHE market which will change the standard tedious lessons into a fun and exciting way of learning through game-based learning, whilst at the same time educating the teachers and parents and making them able to monitor their children.
The launch of these new apps comes at an exciting time for Gooseberry planet as we have just moved into our first office, Gooseberry Towers. This will enable us to expand and grow, in order to get the word of Gooseberry Planet out and start educating our children about online safety.
We are also now proud members of the UKCCIS (UK Council for Child Internet Safety) which are a collective group of over 200 organisations drawn from across government, industry, law, academia and charity sectors that work in partnership to help keep children safe online. The council was founded in 2010 and has since had a lot of excellent achievements, for example the implementing of an unavoidable choice for home broadband customers about whether to turn on parental control filters. We feel that this council is extremely important and we are delighted to be a part of it.
