Scholars Global School and Singapore’s Create Lab are collaborating to bring coding, robotics and design courses to the school. These courses will empower our children to become technology creators, and not just remain as technology consumers. Our children will grow up in a world very different from any generation before them. Because of Artificial Intelligence, Big Data & Robotics, most will do jobs that aren’t even invented yet. Children will need 21st Century Skills: Creativity, Critical Thinking, Collaboration, Communication & Empathy – skills machines can’t replicate. Computational Thinking will empower children with these essential skills. Welcome to the new literacy!
Scholars Global & Create Lab: Coding, robotics & design programs
Learn for the 21ST Century
Create Lab’s core introductory program developed with academics from Oxford, MIT & Singapore’s top universities will help lay the foundation for Scholars Global School students to become powerful Computational Thinkers. Using concepts of coding, robotics & design, students are encouraged to become problem solvers and creators. Students will code their own computer games & digital art, program robots and develop hardware that will progressively enhance their thinking skills and help them excel in school and at home
At the end of the program, students would be able to:
- Develop a foundation in Computational Thinking – a powerful thinking process that enhances cognitive abilities
- Develop 21st Century skills in critical thinking, creativity, communication and collaboration
- Understand and appreciate the basic concepts of computing, including algorithms, sequences, loops, conditionals, variables etc.
- Develop computer programs and hardware for simple games, digital stories and learning tools using concepts of design and innovation
The Create Lab Advantage
Students will be progressively introduced to the fundamentals of design and innovation including empathizing, defining, ideating, prototyping and testing through fun and gamified learning approaches
The course borrows from Prof. Seymour Papert’s constructionist learning theory and the work of MIT Media Lab and Prof. Ken Kahn’s technology enhanced learning theory along with Key Stages 1-3 of the British Computing Programs of Study
Students will be encouraged to explore in a self-paced, “learning by doing” facilitative environment where they will learn to relate design and innovation to key computational concepts including abstraction, variables, loops, and conditionals. Through activities such as role-playing, story-telling, art and music, along with state-of-the-art software and hardware from MIT and Google, students will be challenged to solve simple everyday problems by developing their own computer programs and hardware. Students will be able to share all their output with their families and friends as well as continue to engage and build upon their learning through free to use, cloud based tools
All Create Lab learning resources, tablet and laptop computers, Dash robots, micro-controllers and other technology tools will be provided
Our instructors are very well experienced. All members go through extensive training under the Create Lab Method for curriculum, pedagogy and classroom management by our team in Singapore. Student to instructor will be kept at a maximum of 10:1, to facilitate personalized attention
