      The Computhink Learning Experience

      At Computhink, our teaching approach is enquiry based and our students are encouraged to think deeper and ask questions about what they are learning, and why they are learning it.

      The best way to learn to program is to learn it the fun way! Students are taught scenarios and challenges that are age-appropriate and in topics, they can relate to.

      The September Holiday Workshop Challenges are designed to be modular and standalone and are suitable for beginners as well as current students.

      1. Computhink Student Portal

      All Computhink Students enjoy the use of the Computhink Student Portal.  The Student Portal is similar to the SLS use by MOE schools and is Computhink’s proprietary system for our student’s learning needs, where students will log in every day, and find notes, exercises, short videos, and video recordings explaining concepts for the day.

      2. Hybrid Onsite Classes / or Online Classes

      Students have the choice to attend their classes online or onsite. We support a hybrid learning model.

      Onsite Classes are conducted with Safe Distancing Measures in place in our spacious classrooms in Computhink.

      Online Classes are conducted on Zoom Virtual Classrooms. Login and account instructions will be emailed to you.

      3. Online Coding Platform

      Minecraft Education Edition accounts are provided (free) for students during the workshop. This is where your child will have their own account, and where they will code their daily projects.

      Students joining the Python Code Combat will be guided to create a free account.

      4. Challenges and Assessments

      Students will be given close guidance for their coding challenges for their workshops to test their understanding. Our lessons are enquiry based to help your child learn better.

      Students will be tested on their understanding via challenges to ensure they are following well.

      Here’s what your child will experience in the September Challenge Workshops:

      Z

      Have fun while learning to code in the exciting fun-filled camp.

      Z

      Challenge themselves to think of solutions and to code them.

      Z

      Learn about the exciting world of technology, computers and the internet.

      Z

      Be guided by our experienced and dedicated programmer trainers.

      Z

      Z

      Encourage your child to want to learn how things work and develop a creator mindset.

      FAQs

      Item1

      Is there any pre-requisites for joining this workshop?

      This workshop is suitable for beginners and no prior programming experience is required.

      Do I need to prepare anything for this workshop?

      Onsite Classes: Laptops will be provided for students attending our onsite classes. You may bring along a jacket and a water bottle for your child.

      Online Classes:  Please make sure that your child has a working computer or laptop (Recommended system – CPU: Intel Core i3-3210 3.2 GHz / AMD A8-7600 APU 3.1 GHz or equivalent, RAM: 2GB), with a strong internet connection, and a working web camera.

      • For the best virtual learning experience, it is recommended to have a second monitor plugged into your main computer. i.e. you have 2 screens. One screen is for viewing the teacher’s screen, and another screen is for your child to do their code.
      • For younger students of the age 7 to 8, please have an adult within calling distance for the first 15-30 minutes of the class, as they may need help with how to operate a computer.
      • Join the online session 10-15 minutes earlier. We will usually have the zoom session up 15 minutes before the class starts.

      How are Online Classes conducted?

      We have been conducting zoom virtual lessons for all our regular weekly students from Feb 2020 till now, so we are experts in making the online learning experience work for your child.

      Here are the things we do:

      1. StudentWeb Online Portal (LMS): All our notes, videos, assignments, zoom links are available online in our StudentWeb Portal. This is similar to the SLS that our MOE schools use, all our students will have secure access to the system for the camp.

      2. Secure Zoom with Remote Support: We use the paid premium and secure version of Zoom with Remote Support enabled. When students need help, we can remote login to the student’s computers to help them. This is similar to how we would walk around the physical class to help individual students, so the support experience is the same.

      3. Class Recordings: All online zoom classes are recorded and made available to students to view after the class. Students can review the lessons after, and replay parts of the lessons that they had problems understanding.

      Do you provide a certificate upon completion of this workshop?

      We provide every student with a certificate of completion at the end of the workshop.

      What is Minecraft Education Edition and what can you do with it?

      Minecraft: Education Edition is an educational version of Minecraft specifically designed for classroom use. It is being developed by Mojang AB and Xbox Game Studios and contains features that make Minecraft easy to use in a classroom setting. With Minecraft Education Edition, students can:

      • Collaborate on projects with classmates
      • Document your work and share in class
      • Play in a secure environment with your class community

      What is Python good for?

      Python® has been around for more than 20 years and has many libraries that gives it a lot of functionalities, such as

      • Web and Internet development (e.g. Dropbox, Survey Monkey, Bitly)
      • Scientific and Numeric programming, data analysis and modeling (e.g. in forecasting earthquakes)
      • Desktop applications (e.g. in 3D animation for films)
      • Networking and System Administration (e.g. OpenStack in cloud computing)
      • …and much much more!
