Dear Parents and Tutors,
Surrounding the new COVID changes brought forth to most business sectors including education that has not been spared, online learning has been one key focus for us during this challenging time. The new normal has also gotten many parents to find out more about online education programs that will benefit their children during this home schooling period. Also at this time, we have come up with an interesting online education app to cultivate Creative Thinking and Chinese Language skills that aims to target children between the age of 6 – 12 years old. This program was developed by the renowned team running the esteem “John Langrehr Thinking Program” in Singapore.
An innovative app that consists of many “STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) based creative and critical thinking exercises as well as “Multiple Answer Thinking challenges” which boost children’s power of imagination and visualisation. It’s a multi language app in Chinese and English that children can also use to record their ideas verbally or spell out their answers in the educational games.
The questions and animation are fabulous which makes learning along the way fun and intuitive. It also provides a good tool for parenting and coaching if parents or educators are keen to join in the discussion with them. You can give a heads up on each kids creative answers and even generate intriguing discussion to make the stay home study period more valuable and fun filled.
