IAN CHIA

Ian is the founder of Being Prudence – a handcrafted 21st century education “publisher” of handmade apps, books and goods for children and their families.

The people behind Being Prudence are artists and artisans, educators and scholars and researchers, storytellers, software developers, composers and visual effects practitioners, board game and video game designers.

We’re parents passionately invested in our childrens’ future. We’re aspiring to reinvent the learning experience for children because you and we all share the same common problems. We hope you’ll join us in a mutual adventure.

One of our first products is a project-based learning augmented reality app that we’ve been trialling with Heidi Siwak and her Grade 6 class in Dundas, Ontario, Canada who have been creating their own iPhone tourism app. Heidi will be presenting at the Reform Symposium about the amazing engagment and cross-curriculum learning that occured during the trial, and we’ll be sharing about how we plan to extend the opportunity for learners from Grade 3 upwards to high school levels across the world to make their own augmented reality iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad apps in the classroom.
