The demands of tomorrow are unpredictable and ever-changing. So how can parents ensure that their children have the tools they need to succeed? SmartClass is one way to prepare to do just that. This innovative DepEd-accredited homeschooling program combines progressive learning methods with technology to equip the next generation with critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration, and creativity — a dynamic skill set that can adapt to whatever lies ahead.
At the heart of SmartClass’s approach lies the application of constructivist learning principles. This educational philosophy emphasizes the student’s critical role in the learning process, where understanding is constructed from direct experiences. By placing students in realistic, hands-on scenarios, SmartClass allows them to learn through direct experiences, fostering a deeper and more holistic understanding of the subject matter.
In a world where change is a constant, the ability to learn from experience, adapt, and apply knowledge in varying contexts is invaluable. SmartClass’s hands-on approach not only equips students with this adaptability, but also fosters self-confidence and self-motivation. As students navigate through different tasks and challenges independently, they develop a sense of ownership over their learning journey. This autonomy boosts their belief in their own abilities, cultivates an intrinsic motivation to learn, and ultimately prepares them for the uncertainties and possibilities of the future.
SmartClass gives students the freedom to shape their own learning journey. This “build your own program” approach starts with solid academic foundations to which students can add on-demand Learning Enhanced Courses (LEC) that align with their personal learning goals and interests.
For instance, students can opt for additional consultative support through Student or Parent Consultation, enhancing their learning experience with personalized guidance from subject matter experts. Field trips can also be integrated into their program, providing opportunities to apply classroom learning to real-world contexts. SmartClass also offers an extensive range of courses tailored to meet individual student needs, such as Content Creation, Digital Designing, Game Development, and Software Development.
Through its Online Cultural Exchange Program, SmartClass students directly engage with Japanese students in Kyotango, Japan, as they teach them English. This provides a practical application of the language expertise of SmartClass students, refining their communication skills and enhancing their confidence. The program also broadens students’ outlooks, promotes open-mindedness, and encourages respect for multiculturalism.
In today’s fast-paced world with its complex lifestyle demands, many parents find it challenging to take on the role of a full-time teacher. SmartClass alleviates this frustration by allowing parents to become confident learning advocates without sacrificing their chosen lifestyle.
Unlike traditional homeschooling methods where parents carry the weight of teaching, SmartClass offers a unique approach that shifts the role of parents from being primary instructors to facilitators. The SmartClass curriculum is carefully designed to foster interaction between learners and the materials provided. Instead of shouldering the entire burden of teaching, parents become guides who support their child’s learning journey. They play a crucial role in this process by creating an environment that encourages exploration, critical thinking, and engagement with the educational content.
By embracing this innovative approach, parents and guardians can ensure that their children receive a high-quality education tailored to their individual needs, all while enjoying the flexibility and support that SmartClass offers. By paving the way for a modern, accessible form of education, SmartClass equips learners with the necessary skills to succeed in an ever-changing world.
