Local School Program

Local School Program

1.

Local school program brings computational thinking and coding skills to the youth in less resourceful schools where students are at the risk of being left behind in the STEM race.

2.

We are developing an accelerated Information & Computer Technology (ICT) curriculum unique in teaching Form 2 & 3 students to write practical mobile apps essentially by themselves.

3.

In partnership with MIT, we have improved the popular tool, App Inventor, to make it accessible to these technologically inexperienced youth.

4.

At the same time, we have a distinctive mentoring scheme  to promote psychosocial 

development and community involvement. We gather resourceful adults in the community to support these youth in creating useful apps not only to solve their own problems but also to benefit the larger community.

Objective 
To help students develop computational thinking and psycho-social skills through coding education and mentoring.

Program
School-based Train-The-Trainers Model 

The local school program is adopted by all F.2 (Year 1) and F.3 (Year 2) students.

 

We facilitate ICT teacher(s) to teach the coding curriculum

& software, and counselling teachers to coordinate and implement with mentoring scheme.

Target

  • F.2 students

  • F.3 students

  • Or students age 12 or above

Program Period   

  • One year (F.2)

  • Two years (F.2-3)

Coding Class

  • Teacher facilitation workshop: help teachers to master the core content 

  • Teaching materials sharing: Teachers can access to our ICT curriculum, software, and all teaching materials. 

Mentoring Scheme 

  • Teacher facilitation workshop: help teachers to master the core content & team building 

  • Continuous support :  we will continuously help organise the mentoring program at your school.
