EduTech Giants Find Way to Make Preschoolers Future-Ready

Education and technology have joined hands to teach children and make them future-ready. The edutech is not only preferred for higher studies but companies are targeting preschoolers as well.

The e-Learning sector is expected to reach $1.29 billion ($40 billion by some uber-optimistic estimates) by 2018, growing at 17% CAGR.  This is expected to be faster than the global growth by a factor of 2x.

As the part of the process, Maple Bear South Asia has introduced edutech products from Eupheus Learning as part of the teaching aids available at its preschools in South Asia. These products are especially designed to help children develop computational thinking skills.

“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 in our curriculum,” says Hazel Siromoni, Managing Director, Maple Bear South Asia.

Need for introducing a Computational Thinking Program at the early childhood education level

Shalini Jaiswal, Director - Academic, Training & Teacher Education, Maple Bear South Asia, says, "Developing computational thinking skills at the early childhood education level helps children to be articulate and think logically. It helps them start thinking in a manner where they are able to find multiple approaches to problem-solving and then identify the approach that best fits the solution. It is for these reasons that computational thinking has forged a reputation as a powerful universal problem-solving technique: not just in prepping young learners for coding, but also in helping them navigate the world at large.”

Sarvesh Shrivastava, Co-founder and MD, of Eupheus Learning said, “Coding is shaping and advancing almost all industries as of now, our daily lives to be precise reckons on the same. Giving your child an introduction to coding skills is like giving them a magic wand to dream up bigger plans, on their own.”
