Q & A

What’s the purpose of the class?

 

We like to create a fun environment for future ready kids from both technical and mental perspectives. We teach children how to use technology and coding, and to build on the technology other people have already created (to "stand on the shoulders of giants"). We also use the concept of “Growth Mindset” to encourage kids to learn not only on the academic level but also to see effort as the path to success. to embrace challenges, and have the attitude of “it’s not I cannot do it, it’s I can’t do it yet”.  We also train them in the practical ways of computing thinking, and breaking problems down into smaller pieces so they are able to find solutions. 

Does my kid need coding experience or training before come to the class?

 

No, but if they do, we will assign them to different groups or give them some different tasks to match their skills.

How skilled are the teachers?

 

Our teachers are students from University, ranging from third year to postgraduate, in Computer Science. We give them teacher training on coaching kids and facilitation. 

How is technology used in the class?

 

For the non-private class, we will provide PCs, robots and other technology we will use. The technology will change over time based on the teaching materials and trendy AI toys. You can also give us suggestions - if we can, we will take those ideas on board.

My child is not between the age of 7+. Can he/she still take the course?

 

Yes, we have tested our material on the younger and older children. You can always have a free trial to test it out.

Can we have private classes for specific needs?

 

Yes, we can also provide private classes catering to specific needs. We can take kids who are ahead in their study, need some tutoring for getting into University earlier, or are doing programming/innovation competitions. Or if you would like to have an evening class for more than 3 kids in your home, or use different teaching materials, we can provide a teacher too. Just drop us an email, we can arrange something for you

How to measure children’s learning, and different learning speeds

 

For each term we have score cards to measure the knowledge points we would like to teach. When the teacher interacts with each child, they will assess how well the children get each point. Teachers will spend more time with the children who need a bit more explanation and demonstration. We also have challenging material for the fast learning kids to make sure they can learn more without waiting for others.
