The Whuzoo story . . .
Thanks for taking the time to get acquainted with Whuzoo.
Whuzoo has been, and still is, a continually evolving initiative. Like most moms, I am keen to see my kids do well and I take an active part in helping them achieve their best. Wherever possible I encourage them to be independent and self sufficient - and to have some fun along the way.
Learning their second and third language vocabularies was a challenge. As they advanced through the grades, the volume of words to learn each week increased. The amount of time calling, testing, marking and re-testing also increased.
There had to be a smarter solution.
I created a basic spreadsheet tool, based on my work experience, which listed the words they were learning and auto-marked their spelling. Auto-Mom !
Problem solved - mostly. They were at least independent and could get on with their vocabulary learning in their own time and at their own pace .
Seeing how well they took to it, I soon shared the idea with the language HOD's at de la Salle Holy Cross College Junior School . They were equally excited about the idea and asked to make this available to their learners. The spreadsheet concept was re-written as a packaged computer program and - Whuzoo was born !
