[Hanoi, Vietnam/September 02, 2021] Today, Titops is delighted to announce the collaboration with the international leading education partners including NIIT Vietnam, Amphisoft, Tuy.AI, CAIT-NEU, Giap Group and EdInnov to create a consortium for building the next generation of job-driven bootcamp program in Vietnam.
The flagship programs are designed under the EdInnov Framework with 7-step upskilling for the future of jobs.
- Step 1 – Problem solving: Challenge – Challenge students by giving them a problem that is both authentic and interesting: There is no one project for every student. This means that a project has to be flexible enough for students to fit it to their own interests. It also means that teachers need to know about their students’ interests. Authenticity involves using real tools to tackle problems, which do not have their answers printed at the back of a book. Ideal problems involve defining some general parameters and tools, but leave the specific problem definition up to the student.
- Step 2 – Simplification: Simplify the solutions – Give students the basics but keep it short: You will need to give students some basic information and knowledge to get started on their projects. However, the amount of information that the class will need will be less than what you would expect.
- Step 3 – Initiative: Learn to learn – Encourage students to research independently: If the project design is clear and coherent, students will get the vast majority of the information they need from their own independent research. This research can draw from internet message programming language documentation, sample code, and so on.
- Step 4 – Engineering: Systemize the workflow – Build complex skills in students: You can encourage students to use complex tools to complete their projects.
- Step 5 – Critical thinking: Validate – Check that students have understood the concepts: In a classroom focusing on highly individualized projects, teachers need to monitor what students are struggling with. Optimal learning occurs when students struggle with a problem that they are able to find the solution to. If they cross over into frustration or confusion, they are likely to give up. Teachers should keep a careful track of what students know and what they should learn in order to successfully complete their projects.
- Step 6: Productivity: Apply to real life – Ensure that students find innovative uses of everyday objects: Most people see only a single use for an object. This is called Functional Fixedness. Students can be taught to see beyond this .This will help students flex their creative muscles and think beyond the standard uses of everyday objects.
- Step 7 – Adaptability: Fill the gap – Confirm that students know what they still need to learn: In order to innovate and solve problems effectively, students need to understand not only what they already know and what they still need to learn. Teachers should build their projects so that students can list the things they understand about their project, as well as the things they need to understand better.
Mr. Pavitra Mukherjee, General Manager of NIIT Vietnam & President of EdInnov said: “The workforce will be more on job on demand unlike full time jobs. Have to have the skills to lateral thinking/design thinking (what an AI enabled system cannot do). EdInnov Framework will give you a innovative toolbox for lifelong learning journey. Join us for the future of jobs!”
