Our experience teaching Coding, Electronics and Robotics is that students are truly passionate about technology
We have developed a 4 Steps Approach.
Step 1: Understanding the basics while having fun. Our lectures are designed to introduce new concepts with immediate practice so the students can see results and have fun at the same time. Simply cause and effect.
Step 2: Introduction of complexity. Now that the student has experienced cause and effect, it's time to make them reason and struggle a little. However careful line needs to be considered as we don't want students frustrated.
Step 3: Developing trouble-shooting skills. At this stage student is comfortable with the tools. More complex problems require more complex solutions. It's important students develop trouble-shooting skills to test and breakdown problems. Having a coach to help students solve problems by asking questions rather than showing the solution is critical in developing the required skills.
Step 4: Self learning. That's the most exciting stage and when the efforts, investment start paying off. Turning ideas into projects, letting imagination dictate what we want to do, and using the tools at hand to make them reality. Our coaching turns into offering advise on how to manage the project and provide a global view of what needs to be considered
