Our Solutions Foster 21st Century Learning
It is estimated that more than 60% of future jobs haven’t even been invented yet, so what skills should we be teaching to learners to future-proof them? At CRSP dsgn, we believe that we need to transition from the traditional 3 R’s to the 4 C’s. These are the 4 critical 21st century skills which are required to work in the 4th Industrial Revolution (i.e. Creativity, Critical Thinking, Communication and Collaboration). Learn more about how our products foster 21st Century Learning at an affordable and accessible price for learners in South Africa, and the rest of the developing world.
Creativity is one of the most important cognitive skills required for the future. In a world were automation and artificial intelligence are mainstream, future professionals will need to be more innovative and flexible in the workplace. Working with robotics and coding enables learners to develop high levels of creativity which enables them to think out of the box.
Communication has been identified as one of the essential skills required by many employers in a globalised workforce of the present and the future. Learners will need to be able to find the best ways to convey their ideas. The project-based approached implemented in our robotics and coding activities allows learners to foster their verbal, visual and communication skills in order to share their ideas with their peers.
Critical thinking involves having the ability to break down complex problems into simpler ones in order to find solutions. This skill is fostered in subjects such as mathematics and physical science. In 21st century classrooms, coding a robot enables learners to develop high levels of critical thinking, which they can utilise to solve their own communities problems in the future as social innovators.
Collaboration is another key competency that has been identified by many organisations. In the future, more professionals will be required to work effectively in teams to achieve common goals. Learners need to be equipped with inter-personal skills and character traits which will enable them to work effectively with others. Most of our robotics activities require learners to work together in various roles to achieve their team’s overall objectives.
