Worksheets in ASTROSafe provide a great way to consolidate the learning students do whilst exploring the internet. ASTROSafe allows worksheets to be open and closed whilst exploring the internet so the questions can be answered throughout the lesson. The worksheets can be accessed either in the lesson view or from the navbar or navtab when exploring the content within a lesson.
To start a worksheet, a student must navigate to the lesson containing the worksheet. The worksheet cards appear in three states. The card is orange when there is work for the student to complete. It is grey when it has been submitted and awaiting teachers marks. And once the teacher has graded the worksheet it is purple and displays the marks and comments. Please note that whilst the card is grey and with the teacher, students can't edit their answers, however a teacher can return a worksheet to a student for them to improve their answers.
There are four types of questions that students can answer: short text questions, long text questions, multiple choice questions and checkbox questions. Short and long text questions are answered by filling out the text box, whereas the multiple choice and checkbox questions are answered by clicking on the correct answers. Note that for multiple choice only one answer can be selected whereas for checkbox questions multiple answers can be selected.

URSOR is a brand-new app designed to allow kids to search the internet in a safe, appropriate manner. At URSOR we never track, allow advertising, or collect data of your child’s usage. Our goal at URSOR is to make a useful, safe platform for kids to start their early digital education. URSOR also allows kids to save and organise their previous searches in a visual way that helps retain knowledge and make connections between all of their interests!
For us at URSOR, an Internet for Kids means a safe place where kids can explore age-appropriate content on their favourite topics without the distractions of ads, click-bait, and hyperactive targeted content. Inside URSOR there is no social media, no auto-play YouTube, and no mindless and passive attention-killing content. Kids should be able to access the vast knowledge of the web without the exploitation of their vulnerable developing brains.
You would never throw your kid into the deep-end of a pool before he can swim, so we wouldn’t suggest doing the same with unfiltered, open-ended surfing online. URSOR starts kids slowly by introducing them to the basics of searching, choosing, and navigating sources. We remove the distractions of ads and excessive paid-for links so kids can learn first to view, digest, and retain information in a healthy age-appropriate manner.
STAY TUNED! URSOR is being fine tuned and polished as we speak and will be released by Autumn 2022. Until then please sign-up here for weekly updates on our progress, interesting links for kids, and our super-helpful blog posts!
