Globally, schools are embracing educational technology platforms and solutions in responding to the learning needs of children today. This will enable them to become future-ready. Together, let's take a look on what we can do to provide a future-ready education for your child!
In understanding how to equip your child for the future we must first understand their generation and how they learn best. Meet the generation alpha also known as the "Passion Generation", a generation that will grow up in an electronics-filled, socially networked world. From the moment they start school, they will learn different skills that will help them learn how to solve problems that matters them. As the world’s technology advances, the time to complete tasks will be cut short making their generation to have more time to pursue and explore their passions and interests.
Why it matters
Now more than ever, educators and parents must redefine the teaching and learning process in schools and in their homes. We must ensure that our children are engaged using the appropriate technological advancements that are native to them. Integrating a robust vision of student-centered learning environments will give them the avenue to pursue their interests. Thus, preparing them for a technology-driven world.
Collaborating with Global Partners
As the saying goes “It takes a village to raise a child”. Imagine the impact we parents and educators can give if we connect globally. Through the use of technology, we can connect children from all around the globe to interact and collaborate. This will equip children with the skills and tools to communicate in a globally-networked world. In ThriverKids, we have successfully connected children from Singapore, UAE, Philippines, HongKong, and China enabling them to work together in our Future-Ready and Beyond School Program.
Future-Ready Enabled Learning in Action
To create a Future-Ready Education is ensuring that we make learning relevant to our children’s lives. Connecting children to a socially-networked world by creating opportunities for children to contribute and bring about change through technology and innovation.
It is essential to make children, teachers, and parents as collaborators in education. We make sure to focus on our children’s passion and interest by using the right technology and applications to provide a relevant future-ready education for our children.
