Maple Bear Pioneers introduces “Computational Thinking Program” for Preschoolers
Computational Thinking is a problem-solving process that includes a number of characteristics and dispositions. Maple Bear South Asia, the winner of the IDA Education Award 2018 for Most Innovative Pedagogy in Early Learning, has become the first to introduce“Computational Thinking” at the pre-school level across its schools in the region.
As part of the development, Maple Bear South Asia has introduced the following products from Eupheus Learning as part of the teaching aids available at its preschools in South Asia. These products are specially designed to help children develop computational thinking skills.
Cubetto (For ages 3 years and above)
Cubetto is a friendly wooden robot from Primo that teaches children the basics of computer programming through adventure and hands-on play. It offers a fun and engaging way to learn the principles of coding through a myriad of themes and subjects, including Literacy, Numeracy, Maths, Science and many more.
RoboGarden (For all age groups)
Robogarden teaches students different coding concepts, STEAM subjects, and good morals through a game-based environment that helps the student enjoy their education while learning to become the next coding genius.
Hazel Siromoni, Managing Director, Maple Bear South Asia, said, “The Maple Bear program is a living, breathing curriculum that is constantly being updated and we’re always looking ahead of the learning curve to prepare our children for the future. With computational thinking emerging as an unbelievably valuable thinking tool of the 21st century, it was an obvious choice to integrate it into our curriculum.”
