教授法

一方的なレクチャーは行いません。暗記もしません。正解は一つではありません。実生活と同じように、物事を試したり、失敗したり、その原因を探ったり、また試したりを繰り返します。これは生涯学習であり、このスキルとマインドセットで人は学んで行くのです。子どもたちは学び方を学ぶことで、好奇心旺盛になり、独創的になり、多くの引き出しを持ち、世界的な問題を解決して有効なインパクトを与える人間になっていくのです。

All you need to know

In this 5-day introductory course to programming for preschoolers, we will be going on a journey with a very hungry caterpillar to explore basic concepts in programming!

Through bite-sized daily lessons designed to match preschoolers’ attention span and interests, kids will co-operate and collaborate with their classmates to narrate Eric Carle’s classic storybook – The Very Hungry Caterpillar – through code, using Scratch Junior. Without the hassle of programming on their individual devices, kids will be collaborating to provide instructions to their instructor who’ll be acting as their hands and legs!

By the end of this short course, preschoolers will learn not just about curious critters like caterpillars, but discover how to apply code to create animations and tell stories of their choosing.

Your child will require: 
  • A working webcam and microphone, in order to participate in the class and for our instructor to check their understanding.
  • Internet speed of 25Mbps or above. You can check your internet speed here.
  • Familiarity with basic computer functions, such as typing on a keyboard, using a mouse, switching between desktop apps and navigating a browser (opening a new tab, entering URLs)
  • Installing Zoom is recommended for a smoother learning experience. You may do so here.
    (For macOS computers, please enable these permission settings)
  • We also recommend that students have an adult member of their household standing by for Lesson 1 to assist with any technical difficulties that may arise.
  • A printer to print out accompanying worksheets (black and white is fine)
  • Scissors and glue.
    Note for parents: if you feel your child is not able to use scissors and glue independently, please be available to assist. Activities involving scissors and glue will take place during Lessons 2, 3 and 5

Pedagogy

No lectures. No memorisation. No ONE right answer. Like real life, we're all about trying things out yourself, failing, figuring what went wrong & trying again. These are the skills & mindset that will last a lifetime and how we learn in real life. Let's get kids to learn how to learn. Because the kids who learn to learn become curious, inventive, resourceful human beings who solve real world problems to make a meaningful impact.
