Philosophy

You should have learning and education solutions that are hands-on, creative, and year-round. Students will be so immersed in the programs, they’ll forget they are learning!

Curious to find out more about what goes into Education 4.0 and how we partner with you to provide the best solutions?

Education 4.0 Based

To be considered 4.0, the curriculum is combining STEM & STEAM to ensure not only the technology of tomorrow but the soft skills and team environment that all jobs currently face. We ask the questions:

  • Is the main purpose science, technology, engineering, arts or mathematics based?
  • Does the curriculum incorporate more than one of those areas?
  • Are the soft skills learned moving a child forward in their scholastic growth?

STEM/STEAM related jobs are growing at double the rate of other occupations in the job market. Likely this number will increase as the rate of technological growth increases.

This change in the need for future thinking education plays a critical role in the health of the future US economy.

Team Oriented

Jobs of today & tomorrow require a team approach. While you’ll work to hone your personal & professionals skills, coming together will be essential to the success of any project.

Companies look for job seekers that are team focused and able to adapt to any situation in the workplace. You’ll have to work with a variety of personalities and skill sets.

  • Does the program encourage a team environment?
  • Are you solving challenges together and learning from each other’s strengths?
  • Are programs designed to have roles and leaders?
  • Does the curriculum leverage skill sets from all the students who participate?

Interactive

Technology can and should be leveraged to enhance learning. This also means that technology affects attention span. Teaching students to use technology as a tool for their learning helps them understand how to better engage with it.

Technology will continue to play an instrumental and larger role in work and life. Students need to learn how to interact with it for their benefit.

  • Are students engaged in the curriculum?
  • Will they participate throughout the process?
  • Can the student learn how to leverage technology to solve their challenge?

Autonomous

While teamwork plays a critical role, learning how to balance your own skills and work independently in between those team collaborations is important.

Students need to take information and skills to solve their own challenges within the team environment.

  • Will a student be able to self-reflection and learn from the curriculum?
  • Does a student understand what their role in the curriculum is at an individual level to help the whole team succeed?
  • Can a student work alone for a time before rejoining to the group to present their findings?

Inclusive

When we say every student, we live by this. All curriculum must be accessible to every student. While a curriculum may be more suited for the math student over the dreamer, each student will be able to understand the curriculum and how their skills can be used to succeed.

Education 4.0 covers every student and is required for every job. There’s a place for each student & personality type to succeed and share their skill sets. A student’s strength helps another student’s challenge.

  • Can any student, regardless of strength or weakness, understand the curriculum?
  • Is the curriculum designed for one type of student or everyone to collaborate?
  • Can students learn how to leverage each other’s strengths to accomplish goals?

Relevant

Skills needed to succeed today are vastly different and education should be no exception. The soft skills learned in school are what propel a student forward in their career.

There are skills that we don’t even know about yet but are always making sure what we offer can help a student compete in a changing professional environment. The foundations we help reinforce will give students a leg up.

  • Can the curriculum teach a student for future job market needs?
  • Will the skills help a student in other academic areas?

Future Thinking

The future is here and now. Curriculum can’t come from the past anymore. We’re identifying the skills that transcend math, reading, science, etc. to look ahead at what a future job landscape might ask of a student.

Our future success depends on what our students learn today. Future careers and education are unknown, but we can work collaboratively to help students think critically and come from a place of curiosity.

  • Can a student take the skill learned everywhere they go?
  • Are soft skills easy to identify and develop while learning the curriculum?
  • Are students ready for an unknown future?
