At Kidscode, we believe that Recursive Training is a great way to develop and inculcate skills effectively. By applying guided self-discovery as well as trial & error, we ensure that our kids pick up the skills correctly and remember it, just like riding a bike.
Recursive Training (The Circle of Learning)
- We guide your child through step-by-step exercises (Knowledge Acquisition)
- We get them to rebuild their first project or do a slight variation of it (Skills Proficiency)
- We then leave them to build a simple brand new project from the beginning (Skills Application)
- We get them to work on this new project without any guidance (Practical Experience)
- We get them to work together on a real-work scenario (Collaborative Work)
- We get them to what they learned, how they learned it and what was important in what they learned in the class (Reflection)
- We repeat the process to instill confidence and familiarity
- This recursive training method helps to instill the basics of coding; the sense of adventure and the confidence to explore new ways to code even after the course has been completed!
