Geekz Edu Model
Custom made curriculum for each individual's needs, learning styles, passions, skill levels & parental priorities.
Real World Career
To bridge the gap between school & real world, we pick real life careers, integrate with core curriculum, simulate in our studio & empower students to be ready for the world in 2040.
No 2 brains are same. We find the passion of each student, integrate it with their subjects, make them curious & empower them learn.
Technology can never replace educators but integrating it in classroom enhances the education experience.
One-size-fits-all don't fit in education. Each student can learn at their own pace to become individual lifelong learners.
Every student reach a prescribed degree of mastering a concept before advancing to the next concept.
We montior each students' progress real time, create learner profile, analyze & calibrate them against mastery level of their personal goals.
Watch short video lectures as homework. Practice problems at school with educators' help.
Inspire creativity and curiosity in the Robotics STEM education and beyond.
Kids with varying ages learn together to be independent, bold & experience real world in our classroom.
Integrated in daily lesson plans. School is the safe ground to take informed risk, fail hard, learn and strive for greatness.
Whole-child approach to develop kids' mind, body and spirit with self-awareness, responsibility & clean habits.
A whole-child, personalized education supports each student as an individual learner. We tailor our students learning materials that fit each individual's needs, learning styles, passion, interests, skill levels, parental priorities and specific tasks educators feel will best challenge & prepare child to succeed.
Say we are helping kids learn a Math lesson. For a student who is interested in Xbox games, we integrate Math in Minecraft. They play as well as learn how math practically used in real life. We help all our students learn the same lesson - in different ways.
Teachers engage students with provocations or essential questions that need to be answered. This gives students a purpose and an awareness of knowledge they want to understand, skills they want to develop, or new interests to explore.
You can teach students a lesson for few days but if you can help them learn by tapping their curiosity, they will continue the learning process as long as they live and become lifelong learners.
This is the phase where students focus their time on the process of learning. Students investigate the topic through an inquiry-driven research process, building their knowledge of a subject area, applying thinking strategies for tackling challenging problems, and developing habits.
We use U.S curriculum, affiliated to US Board to learn core skills and our education approach is based on Chicago's 1919 Winnetka education model for a child-centered personalized social-emotional learning.
Every student practice and reach a prescribed degree of mastering a concept before advancing to the next concept.
Learning is structured not in terms of time but in terms of certain target levels the student achieve. This is not 21st century idea, back in 1919 Washburne introduced this concept part of Winnetka Plan. He was advocating the opposite to then and now traditional model. What should be fixed is a high level of comprehension and what need to be variable is the amount of time students have to understand a concept.
Students create an external representation of what they have learned, such as a piece of writing or building catapult. Demonstrating to an audience creates accountability and the motivation to complete challenges. Students then reflect on the learning process by asking if they answered the essential question of the unit and how they arrived at that answer.
A focus on reflection fosters a growth mindset and a culture of iteration, which allows students to take ownership over their own learning.
Real time assessment is essential to personalizing learning for students. With the help of 1:1 device, teachers montior each students' progress as they learn and provide feedback immediately to fuel engagement and growth.
Assessing Milestone achievement allows educators to understand students deeply by documenting and analyzing their performance against their personal Goals. Based on the mastery levels, curriculum will be customized and personal goals will be set for each student to keep iterating on the learning cycle.
Rate of Learning is 2.5x Faster in this Personalized Education Model!
Example from the Classroom
Transforms the school experience.
When purposefully used, technology enhances the education experience. By streamlining certain tasks, teachers can spend more quality time with students, schools and classrooms can run more efficiently, and parents can quickly and easily communicate with teachers. We believe technology can never replace human relationships or in-person learning. Instead, it is a tool to support the growth of each individual student.
Through Geekz tools, students manage their own projects and assignments, teachers personalize and assess student activities real time, and parents connect with their child’s learning experiences.
