What is Smart Spin?




It’s so simple - spin a wheel to land on a random topic. Our topics include a punchy overview, a deeper dive into the topic, some carefully curated and chosen videos and resources, and links to related topics. Our topics are arranged in creative “collections” which paint landscapes as well as merge disciplines.
“Information discovery plays a central role in how we fuel our creativity” (Maria Popova)


Smart Spin is designed to be a springboard for children to discover what inspires and fascinates them. It is the perfect starting point for further exploration, creation and learning (instructive, collaborative or self-directed).

All too often, learning either comes at us in a spoon or as an endpoint that we have to reach. This is based on the notion that there are certain things we *need* to know. And while that is true, and knowing is good, we believe that curiosity is better. So we’ve set out to build...

 curiosity experience.
Not a search engine but a find engine.
An adventure park for the imagination and discovery.

Smart Spin is the antidote to passive, dry education and a narrow, directed and predictable mode of learning.
“Education is not a destination. It’s a curious journey...” (Debasish Mridha)
Our team is making sure that every ‘learn’ is surrounded by excitement, joy and an undiminished spirit for exploration.

Smart Spin covers a wide range of subjects and fields:



Who is Smart Spin for?

  • The content is collected, curated and edited for ages 10 and up, yet clever younger learners still find much to discover. We also invite you yourself to dive in and enjoy exploring the wealth of knowledge hidden inside Smart Spin.

  • Whether you’re an involved and passionate parent, a caring and creative teacher, or both...

  • Whether your child or student is naturally curious or loves to be inspired, is self-driven or learns best from others, is boisterous or calm, is adventurous or intellectual, loves to freely explore or gravitates towards goals, or any and all of the above... 

  • Whether learning in your home or classroom is structured or open-ended; whether it is instructive, collaborative or self-directed; whether you know what you’re doing or you’re just going with the flow... 

  • And if your child finds it difficult to learn in a traditional classroom setting for any number of reasons, including special and additional needs or personality preferences...Smart Spin is there for you.

With Smart Spin, learners can...



Smart Spin is a great addition to anything you're already doing with your child. Even if you've already got a great thing going on, and a busy schedule, Smart Spin is a perfect way to;
  • fill 5 minutes before dinner 
  • get a new conversation going on the drive home 
  • involve wider friends and family into fascinating discussions 
  • help your child find out what inspires them 
  • build a day's lesson plan around our Smarties.

So come join us for a journey of discovery, curiosity and adventure.
