What is Anywhere Teacher?

It’s an action-packed, multisensory online learning destination with 2500+ games, songs, books, flash cards, and much more, for kids ages 2-8.

How do I prevent my child from clicking out of Anywhere Teacher and going to other sites?

Anywhere Teacher is a contained website that has no external links. Because of this, the Anywhere Teacher app is safe and secure for child use. Third-party web browsers, such as Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, may contain alternate filter settings.

How do I search for content on Anywhere Teacher?

Searching for content on Anywhere Teacher can be performed two ways. The first is by using the search button in the upper right corner of the home page that looks like a magnifying glass. This is a quick way to find favorite activities. If you are just browsing, you can use the icons on the top of the page to narrow down results. For example, click on the purple “Books” icon to see only our selection of books. Or, flip the switch from "Activities" to "Grades" and select the green "K" to see our selection of Kindergarten activities. If you'd like to narrow the search even further, you can add another category icon from the second row such as "Addition" or "Science". Get lost? Don't worry, click on the white half-circle with the blue triangle to open the main menu, click on the "Home" Button to start over.

How can I print from Anywhere Teacher?

Once you have created an account on Anywhere Teacher, it is possible to access that account from any compatible device. For example, you could visit www.anywhereteacher.com on your desktop or laptop computer, and use the same username and password to log in to your active account. This would be the quickest way to print the printable worksheets, if you already have a computer hooked up to a printer.

If you do not have access to a desktop or laptop computer, be sure that your printer is compatible to print wirelessly from a phone/tablet, and download the newest version of the printer app.

Why is this game/video/book running slowly?

If you are experiencing any slowdown or loading issues, we recommend trying the Anywhere Teacher app. Through this official app, we have maximized activity performance and it is free to download from your device’s app store or from SchoolZone.com.

If you’re viewing AnywhereTeacher.com on a desktop or laptop computer, be sure your web browser is up to date. If the browser is up to date and the activities are still running slowly, you can also use alternate web browsers such as Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome for increased performance.

I never received an email containing a download link after purchasing a Windows download.

After purchasing any of our Windows downloads, you should receive an email containing a link to the file. If you do not see the email in your inbox, please check your spam folder as well. In addition, you can view your purchased downloads on the School Zone website. Once logged into your account, go to your account page. Select the My Orders button. Any downloadable products purchased will have a Download Now button associated to them individually.

I purchased a program for download, but it won't work on my Mac.

The School Zone titles available for purchase and download on our website will work only in Windows. Downloadable titles for Mac OS 10.6 and up can be purchased through the Mac App Store.

How do I redeem a Golden Scholar Code?

Golden Scholar Club no longer requires a code, simply visit our Free Gift Registration page.

I purchased an app through iTunes / Mac App Store and would like a refund.

All purchases made through iTunes and the Mac App Store are handled by Apple. School Zone does not have access to your billing information for such orders. Therefore, Apple is responsible for granting refunds for those purchases. Here are the steps for requesting a refund:

  1. Go to the iTunes store.
  2. Click to view your account.
  3. Click on "Purchase History."
  4. Locate the app you are having issues with and then click on "Report a Problem."
  5. Fill out the corresponding form with as much relevant information as possible.
  6. Apple should respond to your request within several days.

I don't hear any sound when I am playing one of my School Zone apps on my iPad.

This issue results from how the iPad Settings and the small side switch on the iPad interact with one another. In order to restore sound to the app, please follow these steps:

  1. On your iPad go to Settings.
  2. Tap General.
  3. Under the heading "Use side switch to:" tap "Lock Rotation."
  4. Exit Settings.
  5. Launch the app again and you should hear the sound.

Should you choose to do so, you are then free to go back and change the side switch setting back to mute, and it should not affect the sound in the app.

The School Zone software I have on CD no longer works on my Mac since I upgraded to Mac OS 10.7.

Most of School Zone’s older CDs are not compatible with Mac OS 10.7. If this was a recent purchase (within the last 90 days) from an authorized retailer or from SchoolZone.com, please contact technical support at support@schoolzone.com for more information regarding this issue.

I have installed the software but the program still asks me to insert the CD.

If this was a recent purchase (within 90 days) from an authorized retailer you may be entitled to a replacement if a revision is available. Email, fax or standard mail a dated proof of purchase, a note requesting an updated version, your email address, and your mailing address to:

School Zone Publishing Attn: Tech Support 1819 Industrial Drive Grand Haven, MI 49417 Fax: 616-846-0214 Email: support@schoolzone.com

School Zone Publishing Attn: Tech Support 1819 Industrial Drive Grand Haven, MI 49417

The installation program requires Classic to run. I do not have a Classic OS on my Mac.

Previous versions of School Zone software did not have an OS X installer. On these versions, the program is designed to run directly from the CD by clicking the icon that has "OS X" at the end of its name.

I have installed the software but the program still asks me to insert the CD.

The newer versions of our software do not require the CD after installation. We are also currently in the process of updating existing titles to no longer require the CD to be present after installation. If this was a recent purchase (within 90 days) from an authorized retailer you may be entitled to a replacement if a revision is available. Email, fax or standard mail a dated proof of purchase, a note requesting an updated version, your email address, and your mailing address to:

School Zone Publishing Attn: Tech Support 1819 Industrial Drive Grand Haven, MI 49417 Fax: 616-846-0214 Email: support@schoolzone.com

The program installed and appears to play properly but I have no sound.

Please verify that your headphones or speakers are plugged into your computer. Also check that the sound is not muted or too low. If you continue to experience sound-related issues, please contact technical support at support@schoolzone.com.
