Educate me

Educate Me was established in 1984 in Sydney, NSW. The company is involved in the creation, production and distribution of in-school presentations to primary schools. The company philosophy is to bring to schools programs which are educational, entertaining, affordable and which are specifically linked to key learning areas of the curriculum. The programs are presented to students through a live performance accompanied by various exhibits. Generally the programs are conducted for the whole school broken down into infants and juniors, intermediate and senior.

Our programs are developed to provide scientific credibility and educational relevance. Over the last several years Educate Me has developed programs which cover the areas of natural history, science and technology and the environment. We would class most of our programs as falling into the social studies area of the curriculum (or Human Societies and their Environments)

New programs are continually under development with the focus on a subject that integrates easily into the school curriculum. The company employs school teachers and educationalists to advise on program content and development and also to present our programs. We operate in all states of Australia and have expanded internationally. In 1996 the company offered its programs to schools in New Zealand and this was followed by expansion into South Africa in 1997, England in 1998 and the Republic of Ireland in 2000. The company plans to introduce its programs to schools in the USA. within the next few years. We estimate that currently our programs are seen by over 450,000 school children in all of these countries annually.

Our programs are presented to students with a large number of display items, some of which the children are able to handle and examine closely. As an example, some of the exhibits brought to schools include the skulls of dinosaurs, a working model of a volcano and an inflatable balloon in the shape of a sperm whale 30 feet long.

In 2000 the company developed a website. As it now stands, the site is purely and simply a method of providing information about the company’s programs. The site address is

All schools who schedule a program receive a disc containing educational resources. Teachers are able to print out worksheets and learning activities that are specific to the program they have scheduled and there is also extensive research information available to teachers wishing to pursue the subject in more detail. It is the company’s intention to develop lesson plans which will enable teachers to print a complete unit of work on various subjects.

Preschool and kindergarten games

"My Granddaughter and Grandson our 3 and 4 they will love this. I cannot wait to show them! Thank you so much for having something like this and it is FREE :)"

– Diana Ames

"This site was recommended to me by a fellow social studies teacher as we were doing our US geography review with our classes. I happened to stumble upon the preschool section as I was exploring the site at home. What an awesome job you guys have done with the preschool section. I have a 2 year old little girl and we played around with the colors and shapes game last night and it was so much fun. She loves it!

I was amazed at how user friendly the programs were for my daughter. She had NEVER used a computer before and by the end of the night (we spent about an hour playing/learning) she was able to use the mouse and point and click and everything! She actually cried when I told her we had to stop and get ready for bed. I can’t wait to check out the rest of the games!

From a 7th grade teacher and the parent of a 2 year old, I say “JOB WELL DONE!” -Ms. Porschia Grace ( Osceola Creek Middle School )

"I just found your new preschool games while looking for a state game. I LOVE THEM. I work in a FMD room (K-2) with 8 children

(6 autistic, 2 other) and we are always looking for interactive games online. Thank you so much for making just what we have been looking for." – Kathy Hussey (specializing in childhood autism)

I am a huge Sheppard Software fan! My kids love all the preschool games. They are 3 and a half and one and a half and they play them all the time. Our 3 ½ year old plays the puzzles and animal games every day. I also teach Grade 2 and 3 students in an I.T. class, and they have become fans as well. It is a great website for children! Keep it up! -Samuel D. Cook (Head of School- North Jakarta International School)

How to find qualified education leads mvf global

How to find qualified Education Leads

What are Education Leads?

Students today have a far greater choice than 20 years ago when looking at further education and business qualification courses. Not only are there more establishments offering relevant courses, but also students can now look beyond their own borders into Europe, across the Atlantic to the USA and even to Asia. This means that universities and colleges around the world can’t just sit back and hope to fill their annual quotas – especially as, with the advent of online courses, these quotas are in some cases unlimited.

The business of education has suddenly become even more competitive. It’s not just about coming top of the league tables. It’s also about how much money can be made. And that’s where education leads come in. Instead of simply soliciting applications through the standard channels, universities, colleges and other training establishments are turning to external companies to help them find potential students looking for the courses that they offer. They are willing to pay for the details of someone with the right qualifications, who they can then contact and sell to. These details are known as an educational lead.

How do you find qualified education leads?

A qualified education lead is the details of a potential student who has already been contacted to make sure that they really fulfil the required criteria for the establishment in question. Lead generation companies today typically find these leads via the Internet, which is, after all, where most students will be searching for their place of learning.

A reputable lead generation company will be an expert in online marketing. They will understand how to use the key online channels – search, email marketing, affiliate marketing and social media, to find the right kind of potential students. They will then provide them with all the information they need to decide on their choice of course before encouraging them to fill in a form in order to discover further information. The most important step comes next, however, when they call back every person who gets in contact in order to verify their details and work out which university, college or training establishment is best suited to their qualifications and needs. Only then will they pass on the lead and receive payment.

For a university, college or training school, the first step is to find a lead generation company. This is a growing market – lead generation represents over 1% of the UK advertising market today – and so it is important to find a company that understands the business of education. The next step is to agree on the exact criteria for a qualified lead and, of course, the cost per lead to be paid. All these details should be confirmed in a contract in order to avoid any unnecessary disputes.

The UK has lagged behind the US in the area of education leads until recently, but there is now a huge boom in this area, with UK and US universities alike looking to recruit British leads for their establishments.

How to find an internship

How to Find an Internship

Internships for Students, Grads, and Career Changers

An internship is a pre-professional work experience that provides students, recent graduates, and those seeking to change careers with the opportunity to gain experience in a particular career field. For students, internships also supplement academic classes and, in some cases, earn college credit. For recent graduates and individuals considering a career change an internship is a way to try a new job without making a permanent commitment. An internship is a way to test the waters in a variety of career fields, to gain “real-life” experience, and a way to decide on – or opt out – of a certain vocation.

How to Find Internship Listings

It’s not too late to line up an internship for the summer or next semester. It is important to visit your college’s Career Services or Internship Programs office as soon as you get back on campus or check out their online resources if you still have some time before classes start. The office can direct you to internships targeted specifically towards students from your college.

Internships for Graduates

If you’re a recent graduate looking for some work experience or are interested in a career change, consider an internship to get an insider’s view of a new career field. It will allow you to gain experience and to decide if this is something you really want to do. Plan your internship search just as you would a job search. but, specify when you apply that you’re interested in an internship rather than a permanent position.

Start with the sites that let you search specifically for internships for example, has an advanced search feature that enables you to specify location, industry, job function, time of year and keyword. Our directory has internship listings in a variety of locations and career fields.

Using the keyword search component of the major online jobs databases and searching for “intern” or “internship” is another way to generate internship leads.

Use Your Network

Need more leads? Speak with teachers, family, former employers, coaches, friends, parents of friends – anyone and everyone you can think of – and ask for contacts in your geographic and/or career fields of interest. Meet with (or email or call) these individuals for information about careers and advice about conducting your internship search. Read our guide to Informational Interviews for how to get started.

Internship Logistics

Now for the logistics. Internships can be paid or unpaid. It is important to check with the company before you take the position to determine if there is a salary, a stipend or no compensation. Academic credit is a possibility for many internships. However, the internship will need to be approved for credit by your college and you may need a faculty sponsor. The internship sponsor must also agree to supervise and evaluate the internship experience. In many, cases there are school deadlines for applying for credit, so check soon with the appropriate department at your institution.

It makes good sense to have a clear idea of what’s expected from you and what you expect from the employer before you start the internship. Discuss the details and the logistics with the internship sponsor before you start, so the internship will be a positive experience for both you and the company.
