Our Learning Philosophy
Our schools are not teaching the right skills for the world of tomorrow
Technology has advanced rapidly over the past 10-years. Today, we can access the entire knowledge of humankind, speak with anyone instantly and work from anywhere just with a smartphone in our pocket. These changes are going to accelerate as computers become ever more powerful. Our children will have to harness these changes in order to thrive. Skills such as creativity, imagination, problem-solving skills and collaboration will be essential. Unfortunately, schools today are yet to emphasize these skills over traditional rote learning.
Computer Science teaches anybody to be creative!
Today’s technology is opening up a whole new platform for creativity and expression. Learning to code, build robots and apply design thinking enable new ways of sharing ideas and feeling. Expressing with technology requires critical thinking, planning, communicating and collaborating – all of which are 21st-century competencies. In a digital future, it is important to empower children to become creators with technology and not just consumers who watch videos or play video games on their devices.
Coding is for everything!
Learning to code is not just for those who are looking for a career in computer science. Coding enables Computational Thinking. It’s a powerful process that helps to approach real-world problems with real-world solutions taking in to account resource constraints. It fosters deconstruction, abstraction, logic, perseverance: attitudes that are highly valuable in a situation – whether in school or in the workplace
