- KooClass aims to keep children engaged and motivated to learn during this phase of home-based learning
- Ideal for children, aged 6-12 years, KooClass aims to help them learn about real-world applications of math topics taught in school.
As Singapore enters a phase of heightened restrictions with the shift to home-based learning, delivering high quality, engaging learning content has become an increasingly imminent challenge. With many students learning from home right now, and normal routines out of the window, it is more important than ever to encourage students to become independent learners who are interested in learning, not just for the sake of it.
While there is no shortage of solutions to tackle the shift to home-based learning, these initiatives are often missing a critical strategy cited by decades of youth development research: developing curiosity for a child’s learning development. According to a McKinsey report, ‘intentional learning’, or the active desire to learn and acquire knowledge, is the most important skill to develop in this new digital age.
As such, the KooClass series is offering a fresh way to learn with fun interactive segments and visual aids.
Stanley Han, founder and CEO of KooBits says, “It is highly important to ensure that this generation of learners learn effectively and enjoy learning, despite the unfavourable circumstances. With over 100+ hours of educational lessons and new classes released every week, KooClass aims to re-engage students and offer a meaningful learning experience. Ultimately, we hope to feed their curiosity, develop their critical thinking skills and enrich their lives beyond the classroom.”
Dynamic visuals and interactive segments will help students learn better
With KooClass, students will be able to experience a fresh way to learn, aside from the mundane and repetitive curriculum, and as such develop a love for learning. In each lesson, children can:
- Watch an educational / documentary-style video taught by friendly and lovable characters,
- Get hands-on practice with an interactive segment (questions, assignments or activities for kids to do) and
- Unlock achievements after completing the lesson.
These interactive elements aid in dispelling math or school-related anxiety and offer an engaging outlet to learn. KooClass is trying to replicate the best-of-class teaching by top educators, and offer a top-quality learning experience in the form of online animated videos and interactive activities that is of high appeal to today’s digital native generation.
KooBits platform delivers comprehensive education content and world-class teaching pedagogies through highly personalized learning experiences at a global scale. They integrate motivational dynamics, social and peer learning, and parent-teacher-child interaction to make learning more engaging and effective.
