Recently I had the chance to sit down with Sara, who works with all of our instructors and helps them prepare for their teaching assignments. Additionally, she is responsible for many other tasks as a part of the ThoughtSTEM team. She provided insight on the curriculum used by ThoughSTEM instructors and how she became involved with the company. All of the curriculum she and the team makes help benefit your students in our programs.
Empathy: Caring for other people and sharing in their feelings and experiences. It’s undoubtedly an important quality for everyone to have. Empathy is also something that is taught through families, through teachers, through friends. If education is to prepare people for success in the world, then empathy has to be a big part of their education. It’s easy to see how useful having empathy would be for areas such as business, marketing, or any other type of work that requires interacting with other people. However, empathy is just as important for people in computer science.
Recently I got a chance to sit down with Allison Moya. She is one of our summer interns helping out at SDSU. We really love having her be a part of the team and working with us.
At ThoughtSTEM, we teach kids the language of computers in order to prepare them for the future. But why? This is the first post in a series of blog posts discussing why we believe it’s so important to teach coding to kids today.
Zach is one of our awesome Office Interns. He helps us write our coding curriculum while learning about the office environment and the technologies we use. We love having Zach around and can’t wait to see how he grows in his role with us.
Can you tell me a little about yourself?
Hey! I’m Lisa. I teach computer coding at ThoughtSTEM. Usually, I teach in Del Mar focusing on survival games, as well as enrichment classes.
1. Critical Thinking
At ThoughtSTEM, we value critical thinking. Our coaches are aware of the importance critical thinking plays in developing into a successful coder. When a student is working on their game, they learn how to evaluate the problem at hand by breaking it down into smaller problems. Critical thinking translates well into even the non-technical areas of your child’s life: whether they’re trying to evaluate the factuality of information they find on the internet, or whether they have a complicated logistical problem to solve.
