Following successful trials of curriculum-based and careers-specific roleplay resources with teachers and students in schools and tutors and young adults in training establishments Mark Casson formally established ActUp as a limited liability company in 1999. Since then over 200 cross-curricula roleplays have been created including curriculum areas of Health and PE, Social Studies, Science, Technology, English, and topics for Careers and Unit Standards classes.
ActUp contracts in playwrights, teachers and professionals as required to develop and trial these resources. We are all dedicated to active learning using drama to make the learning experience enjoyable, focused, creative, structured and inclusive for all.
ActUp is based in Wellington, New Zealand.
