Our goal is to prepare students to apply computing concepts to address real-world problems.

Our projects are meticulously designed to be fun and to be closely align with CSTA’s K-12 Computer Science standards.
Kids learn new concepts without even realizing it!

  • Low student-to-instructor ratio to provide personalized 1-on-1 instruction
  • Students learn from a combination of online and offline material
  • All-adult & tech-savvy instructors with background in computer science

WHY WIZE

Computers are now part of everyday life and, for most of us, technology is essential to our lives, at home and at work. ‘Computational thinking’ is a skill that all pupils must learn if they are to be ready for the workplace and able to participate effectively in the digital world. Wize Academy curriculum for computing has been developed to equip kids at an early age with the foundational skills, knowledge and understanding of computing they will need for the rest of their lives. Through this program they will learn how computers and computer systems work, they will design and build programs, they will work with robots and design interfaces to operate them, they will develop their ideas using technology, and create a range of digital content. Kids create new projects, work as a team, participate in hackathons and present ideas and creations to the class on a regular basis! Computing helps kids:
  • Think : Programming a computer teaches to think
  • Collaborate : Kids work as a team to realize their ideas
  • Createe : Not just use, but create technology
  • Learn : Learn what computing is actually like
  • Play : Kids learn to code while having fun

OUR APPROACH

Project-based learning, with projects specific to student’s age and expertise. We use a variety of tools to teach coding and robotics to kids aged 4-16 years old:
Following courses are coming soon!
  • 3D Modeling and Printing
  • Coding in Virtual Reality

We believe that “learning by doing” is the best way to learn coding and building programs. Thru our unique program kids learn key problem-solving and project-design skills that are not only helpful in computing but life in general
  • Logical reasoning
  • Developing ideas from initial conception to completed project
  • Collaboration and team building
  • Debugging problems
  • Sustained focus and perseverance

Students learn from a combination of online projects and offline material. Students participate in project showcases at the end of each semester. Our tutors are adults & tech-savvy instructors with background in computing and/or teaching. We provide regular updates to parents thru Seesaw mobile app.

CODING & ROBOTICS

We follow CSTA’s K-12 Computer Science standards and align our projects closely with these standards:
  • Computational Thinking
  • Collaboration
  • Using Communication Devices
  • Understanding Community, Global & Ethical Impact

STANDARDS

We follow ISTE standards for students to ensure that learning with Wize is a student-driven process:
  • Empowered Learner - Students leverage technology to take an active role in choosing, achieving and demonstrating competency in their learning goals.
  • Digital Citizen - Students recognize the rights, responsibilities and opportunities of living, learning and working in an interconnected digital world, and they act and model in ways that are safe, legal and ethical.
  • Knowledge Constructor - Students critically curate a variety of resources using digital tools to construct knowledge, produce creative artifacts and make meaningful learning experiences for themselves and others.
  • Innovative Designer - Students use a variety of technologies within a design process to identify and solve problems by creating new, useful or imaginative solutions.
  • Computational Thinker - Students develop and employ strategies for understanding and solving problems in ways that leverage the power of technological methods to develop and test solutions.
  • Creative Communicator - Students communicate clearly and express themselves creatively for a variety of purposes using the platforms, tools, styles, formats and digital media appropriate to their goals.
  • Global Collaborator - Students use digital tools to broaden their perspectives and enrich their learning by collaborating with others and working effectively in teams locally and globally.
