"Learn how to Learn"
ripplecreate is founded on the premise that education should keep pace with societal change. According to a World Economic Forum report published in January 2016, “65% of children entering primary school today will ultimately end up working in completely new job types that don’t yet exist.” Set amidst such a rapidly changing employment landscape, it is crucial that we prepare children with the skills of the future so they may anticipate and fully seize the opportunities presented by the changing trends.
And that’s how we came about. At ripplecreate, we are convicted about equipping children with the appropriate skill sets to confront the challenges of the future. With the prevalence of technology today, as well as the wealth of choices offered with regards to how they wish to start their learning journey with technology, our emphasis is on teaching our students to “learn how to learn”. ripplecreate’s holistic, broad-based curriculum focuses on instilling in students an intuitive grasp of key concepts that can be applied to any platform. Our teachers are carefully selected for their passion and skill sets, as well as their ability to communicate with a younger audience. In addition, we provide state-of-the-art teaching tools to enhance the overall learning experience of the children, as well as certification to prove their newly acquired proficiency in any given area.
