To our members...


Welcome to one of FreshAz Educations' services... Our International eSchool Learn-Now. We're beaming in and around NZ, with teacher-moderated, global-based partnerships, projects, programmes, clubs and tuition! (CURRENTLY this is in sabbatical mode - til possibly mid-late 2021, due to other supports in action). 

We're an eSchool where we front up to make an impact on students - and where students in turn, learn to make an impact on themselves and others - now and with a future focus!

Learn-Now's the host service for KidzClubz, KidzConferences, Global Citizenship interaction, Leadership training, Extension & Enrichment, Learning Languages (with a difference) and Financial Literacy programming online (with face-to-face or live lessons by negotiation) - and more! We feature learning lounges, tuition studios, online clubs and student cafes! Open to 8-13 year olds - of any ability.


Hosted by: FreshAz Education Ltd

Engineering - a point of difference...

Ask about our Engineering Programme for 8-13 year olds. We're taking the thought that coding needs to be learnt to the next level... Engineering:

“Engineers are people who design, construct, and maintain structures, materials, and systems while considering the limitations imposed by practicality, regulation, safety, and cost.” Wikipedia

Learn-Now / KidzConnectz

AEO About Us.jpg

Wink Learn-Now's the award winning programme run by Registered NZ Teachers & Tutors. Learn-Now was first established in 2001, informed by experience with online teaching since 1997.

Learn-Now's been evolving its global elearning, financial literacy and compassion programme ever since. It helped establish what became the leading student-based portfolio for FreshAz Education (though formerly known as AEO Ltd - 'Authentic Encounters Online' earlier). Late 2016, we've invited to create a very specialised 'Like Minds' programme known as KidzConnectz - but watch this space for more on this, mid Term 1'ish 2017.

Making an Impact

Connecting Impacting Collaborating


Students aim to make an impact in the lives of others. They join projects and learn how to create, contribute to and facilitate their own.


Students connect with people 'in the field'. This ranges from people in other countries guest experts, or students in other schools. At one point, we took an interest in Anthony (12) in Uganda (right), and funded a water tank in a nearby Ugandan village in need.

SmileGlobal and Digital Citizenship is at the Social Inquiry heart of Learn-Now. So too, are concepts of Pay it forward, and working with and for each other (not for the teacher). Students experience scenarios to live and breathe, including participation in community projects. With all they learn so what, what if and what now are challenges. How can new skills or slices of knowledge impact others, or further develop themselves...?
