Any educational program can be distinguished as a successful program if it meets its most important purpose- inculcating the spirit of the educational program amongst its students and successfully delivering its learning outcomes thereby producing successful and accomplished students.
1. Increase Knowledge:
- Understanding to explore solutions and create new ideas and concepts.
- Ability to design a system to answer needs through analysis of the interaction between essential technologies.
- Knowledge management ability to bring the technological, marketing, organisation and social knowledge into innovations.
2. It imparts knowledge and not just gives information:
A good educational program focuses on imparting knowledge to its students. Knowledge must be differentiated from information in the sense that knowledge is deeply imbibed by the student through a thorough understanding of the concepts while information can be extracted from Google as well. Information can be cramped but only knowledge can be applied to different situations.
3. It focuses on experience-based learning:
An educational program is successful if it encourages the students to explore and feeds their curiosity. A student needs to be intellectually curious to learn new concepts. An outstanding educational program such as offered by Atlantis not only teaches the concepts of STEM to students but makes them experience those concepts hands on. The trajectory of a rocket is not taught to students by paper and pen, but by flying of real rockets and real measurement and analysis.
4. It focuses on applications of the educational program:
Any knowledge is useful when the student can apply it to real life situations. A successful educational program drives the application of concepts and puts students into challenging projects that take out their best of abilities and analytical skills to the forth. Once a student has measured the height of a building using trigonometry, the concept becomes easy forever. The most important feature of an extraordinary educational program is that its students will not find any concept burdensome. Learning is always fun and adventurous!
5. It focuses on personality development of students:
An educational program is successful if it provides education for life. In the educational programs offered by Atlantis, students not only learn the concepts in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) but also learn soft skills like teamwork, leadership, communication and time management while they work in teams on certain projects. A gamified version of learning is presented to students and makes them self motivated, goal oriented, creative and skilled at resource management.
6. A good education program is developed with passion:
Another important feature of a good education program is its development and execution. Educators who are passionate about learning and teaching develop an education program which is not only fun to undergo but is filled with learning and skill development. An experienced educator imbibes years of learning into the development of the content of a successful education program. That which is created with admiration and the desire to share becomes engaging and adventurous to participate in.
7. Enhancement of social competencies:
Social competencies include intellectual activities, social interpersonal relationships, and skills in self-control. Students will learn important skills in listening, thinking, communicating and moving forward through independent study, group work and double-loop learning.
8. Enhancement of inventiveness:
Inventiveness is based on creativity, industrial engineering, and knowledge-based society. Through this phase, students will take systematically structured Basic/Technical courses to learn to be innovative based on the knowledge science methods.
9. Skill development:
Another important feature of a good education program is its development and performance. Instructors who are enthusiastic about learning and teaching develop an education program that is not only fun to share, but also full of learning and skill development. An experienced teacher gives years of learning in the material development of a successful education program. That which is created with respect and the desire to share becomes pleasant and adventurous to participate in.
