OUR PHILOSOPHY

In modern society, the educational system applies tremendous emphasis on math and the sciences, these subjects are very important.


However, if we do not develop our self-belief, creativity, confidence, ability to solve problems and communicate effectively and persevere, we will not be equipped with the skills necessary to succeed in the digital age.

S. E. L

Social and

Emotional

Life Skills

S.E.L. Definition

“the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships and make responsible decisions.”

Traditional Learning Falls short


Traditional learning falls short of equipping people with the knowledge they need to thrive.


The gap between the skills people learn and the skills required to succeed with their career is becoming more obvious.


Today's job candidates must be creative and possess the ability to collaborate, communicate and problem solve.

 

These skills are developed mainly through Social and Emotional Learning.


Combined with traditional skills, this social and emotional proficiency will equip people to succeed in the evolving digital economy.


We suggest you watch the videos below in order to get a deeper understanding of what creativity really is and why it is such an important part of life today and in the future.

INSPIRATIONAL VIDEOS

Sir Ken Robinson

Do schools kill creativity?


Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity.


He believes that much of the present education system in the United States encourages conformitycomplianceand standardisation rather than creative approaches to learning. 

University of Auckland

What is creativity?


Learn what we currently know about the brain and creativity.


Leading academics explored the creative workings of the brain, how the brain benefits from making and appreciating art in its various forms, the importance of play, how a wandering mind allows for creativity, the science of imagination and the science of happiness.


Child Creativity Lab 

Why do we need creativity?


In the U.S., music and the arts, widely understood as building blocks for enhancing creativity, among other skills, are considered peripheral activities more appropriate for a few talented students rather than the masses.


This is in stark contrast with countries, like Hungary, Japan, and the Netherlands, that consistently rank among the highest in math and science test scores. These countries have long adopted mandates for arts and music education programs.
