”Video can dramatically accelerate professional learning in schools. A primary reason is that video helps educators get a clear picture of reality, which should be an important point of departure for any learning–to move forward, we need to know where we are”. JIM KNIGHT, University of Kansas Center for Research on Learning.

”Educators will appreciate that the authors tackle the issue of trust-building while at the same time providing best practice and practical examples that promote successful implementation. An important tool that belongs in every school’s professional library.” STEPHANIE HIRSH, Executive Director at Learning Forward

Learning by Doing

An interactive eLearning product that teaches Maths and Science through exciting games, 3D simulations and immersive experiments!

MarkSharks’ versatility makes it useful for educators in a variety of settings. Whether you are a teacher that would like a supplementary tool to your teaching in the classroom or a tutor supporting students after school, we can help you find ways to easily integrate EdTech into your educational setting.

Educational studies have shown that a hands-on, interactive approach to learning can significantly improve student performance in school by up to 20%! When students actively experience concepts for themselves, they are more likely to gain a sound foundation known as experiential learning. Experiential learning boosts brain activity, helping students grasp concepts better and develop improved memory retention. MarkSharks is an eLearning tool with a fresh outlook, turning your mobile device or tablet into a virtual lab where you can question, explore, and understand mathematical and scientific concepts using real-world examples.

We have designed a challenging and varied learning environment with an element of fun using games, 3D simulations, puzzles, questions, and experiments, without losing sight of your primary academic goals – sharpening your skills and improving your marks!
