From the closure of physical enrichment classes to shifting to full-home based learning and now the extended circuit breaker measures, our lives have all been affected somewhat.
It was tough for some – dealing with issues like having no laptops, setting up or figuring out how Zoom works, and more.
This has forced everyone out of their comfort zone especially in the area of education and this is a good thing. When the circuit breaker is over, we all would have learned some lasting lessons on how to use technology and how education technology could be sustainable in the long run.
However, we also hear and understand concerns from parents about the amount of screen time kids are now exposed to.
This is why you should attend this webinar.

Teacher Deddy, is both our trainer and co-founder of Kodecoon. He has been teaching programming for about 4 years now, impacting more than 500 students under his care. He is trained to provide sharp assessment on your child’s strengths and weaknesses and how the team can help guide your child in this programming journey.
As a co-founder, he believes that “In the near future, there will be many programmers on the street. But how will your child stand out? Instead of following the crowd to be the best programmer, aim to understand how technology works and apply it to something bigger than yourselves. The answer lies in application.” He loves to challenge the students to take the programming skills that they have been equipped with, and translate them into creative ideas and plans that make a change.
