Collaboration is a core value of design thinking and a key skill required for everyone living in our ever-changing future. Soft skills such as collaboration, imagination, and creativity are essential to navigating the virtual world of games, which encompasses far more than child’s play nowadays—interactions within virtual reality have become part of a global paradigm shift. Taking advantage of virtual platforms to facilitate childhood skill development will be one of the main quests for the future of education.
In the ‘Tiny ideas for one big world’ programme, our teaching team, led by AaaM Architects and partnered with Techlution Service Limited creates a playful learning experience that combines sandbox gaming with a virtual whiteboard system. Mentored by architects, designers, electronic engineers, etc, children will utilise the skills of communication, collaboration, and creative imagination in order to complete a series of missions. It is our belief that an experiential approach can nurture pro-activeness and help kids develop a deeper understanding of collaboration.
