Students do not passively acquire knowledge. The traditional methods of teaching have not proven to be effective. Students construct knowledge as it interacts with their prior learning. Effective learning occurs when students are actively engaged in the learning process.
Our facilitators assist our students to acquire knowledge and skills. Today we do not teach: we facilitate the learning process for our students. Today we do not spoon feed information; we show our students the appropriate ways to acquire and gain knowledge.
Rather than solely teach physics, chemistry, biology, environmental science, humanities, arts, English, Chinese, and math; we help students to explore the many branches of the tree of knowledge.
To accomplish this, our educational center is guided by STEAM/STEAMS philosophy. Its pillars of knowledge and education include:
We nurture critical thinking skills, international-mindedness, and our learner profile traits/competencies within our students, while laying down the foundations for a better tomorrow.
STEAM and STEAMS have proven to be not only strategies to help create a student-centered learning and facilitating environment, but they are crucial pillars of a daily educational milieu and one of the main layers of our unique Multi-Layered Curricular Approach as displayed here.
All of our extra/co-curricular clubs’ learning objectives and learning outcomes
are guided and met via STEAMS / STEAM Projects that are realized and accomplished by our students within the clubs in our village.
