We are always striving to improve, so if you find something that isn’t accessibility friendly, please let us know.

About the Modules

The Blurred Minds Academy features 11 gamified modules which are mapped to the Australian Curriculum for year 7, 8 , 9 and 10.

Each lesson includes an online component that students can complete at their own speed, which is then followed by a teacher-led classroom session that builds on the learnings from the online activity.

Every module corresponds with one classroom lesson. Face-to-face activities can be reduced or lengthened to adapt to a school’s needs.

Modules are written to cater for Year 7, 8, 9 and 10 reading level comprehension. Students are expected to be able to navigate the online component which requires reading, listening, comprehension and basic computer skills. We can help you determine if Blurred Minds Academy is a good match to your students literacy levels in our demo.
