Teaching format: Students and their teacher connect through Skype, Webex or other technology available for your region.
Each classroom has 2-3 students and a tutor.
Ability grouping: We exercise great care when selecting the students and pairing them in the classroom.
Adaptive teaching: While all our classrooms follow the same program, class activities are adapted to each child’s interests and development level and may differ per classroom.
Case method: Students study videos of existing children entrepreneurs and stories about famous companies they know and learn to understand what that business is about.
Learning through collaborative argumentation and Learning by teaching:
+50% of the class time is dedicated to student interactions, where tutor acts as a facilitator. Students learn a great deal by explaining their ideas to others or defending their point of view.
Open-ended problem solving: To motivate child’s critical and creative thinking our exercises often contain incomplete information. Students are asked not only to show their final solution, but also to explain how they got their answers and which assumptions they made on the way.
The program aims to develop the following key competencies for lifelong learning:
- Sense of initiative and entrepreneurship
- Digital competence
- Learning to learn
Full program cost is 150eur payable within 15 days after confirmation of your acceptance.
