Education for the 21st Century

What does it take to be a productive member of today's economy? A college degree? A master's degree? Or perhaps an excellent GPA from high school and college? The reality is, it takes more than just a prestigious degree or a stellar GPA. More than ever now, companies are looking for creative people with a drive to solve problems- qualities that are not taught in school.

If anything, what we see in school today is doing the exact opposite. Students are conditioned to fear failure as it comes with associated punishments such as a bad grade or peer judgement. This not only discourages students to continue to try, but also destroys their creative potentials.

Creativity is born from mistakes and learning from them. At Coder Central, courses are revolved around reviving the innate creativity and curiosity that people are born with. Small class sizes ensures that students receive personalized attention and for them to feel like they are in a safe environment. Teachers at Coder Central place a heavy emphasis on teaching student because they want to learn as opposed to telling them what they should learn.

Curriculums are designed with the intention of challenging students and fostering their ability and motivation to learn on their own. This is something that we believe is far more valuable than just telling students what they should know.
