Online Learning

 

Online learning is education that takes place over the Internet. It is often referred to as “e- learning” among other terms. However, online learning is just one type of “distance learning” - the umbrella term for any learning that takes place across distance and not in a traditional classroom, that supports assignments , video and voice calls up to 200 user, full hierarchical policy for the school, automated exam corrections and many more..

 [Interactive → Immersive → 3D Cad Design Creativity + 3D Printing → Coding and Robotics]

Based on the equation, ACTC in partnership with the school delivers a sustainable program that considers human as main concern insight innovation; this equation shows the main stream of innovation in education to achieve the strategy strength that students can earn through our strong erected curriculum and program that consists of the following:  

I. ICT, Interactive Immersive Learning, CAD Design, Robotics and Coding / Programming curriculum that empowers students with the 21st century skills and engage them to be ready for the challenges of the 4th industrial revolution at all career sectors .

II. A Robotics kit that includes sensors, Arduino, wires, breadboard and electronic devices that enable them to coding and apply programming applications to build their own STEAM projects.

III. 3D Printing (Hardware and Software) tools to create and realize their own objects and ideas in a Harmonic Learning Makerspace Environment.

IV. Official license access to Microsoft office, Autodesk, Adobe and Activinspire to insure learning quality assurance and ethics. 

V. Student’s Projects to be elected to join Local and International innovation competitions

Harmonic Learning Progress 

The Harmonic methodology aims to produce the project idea of students from  their own design using CAD apps then print out the designed objects on 3D printer then assemble and code the final Ai prototype in purpose of social responsibility goals and objectives 




Top Reasons to adopt Harmonic Learning 

  • Simplifying STEAM to apply abstract sciences as applied innovations.
  • Applying the 5Cs 21st century learning strategic skills (Collaboration, Communication, Creativity, Critical thinking, Citizenship)
  • Adopting personalized and learning differences
  • Augmenting multiple intelligence 
  • Saturating the learning styles 
  • Extending the long life learning method
  • Sustaining through applying sustainable development goals
  • Empowering management and leadership skills for students 
  • Accelerating economic growth cycle which matches real life jobs and challenges of the 4th industrial revolution 4iR
  • Developing responsibility through the values of digital citizenship
  • Interactive immersive learning
  • Creativity and 3D printing 
  • Assembling, coding Robotics Ai

Why Arduino?

Thanks to its simple and accessible user experience, Arduino has been used in thousands of different projects and applications. The Arduino software is easy-to-use for beginners, yet flexible enough for advanced users. It runs on Mac, Windows, and Linux. Teachers and students use it to build low cost scientific instruments, to prove chemistry and physics principles, or to get started with programming and robotics. Designers and architects build interactive prototypes, musicians and artists use it for installations and to experiment with new musical instruments. Makers, of course, use it to build many of the projects exhibited at the Maker Faire, for example. Arduino is a key tool to learn new things. Anyone - children, hobbyists, artists, programmers - can start tinkering just following the step by step instructions of a kit, or sharing ideas online with other members of the Arduino community.

Arduino Education classroom programs progress students through STEAM from middle school to university, increasing in complexity to challenge them as they develop their skills.

All programs include a range of electronics such as programmable boards, sensors, mechanical parts, simple open-source software, online content for students, and guided training and support for educators.

The products students learn with are the same as those used professionally in companies around the world, in applications like rapid prototyping, AI, drone technology, and machine learning.

Arduino IOT

The Internet of things (IoT) is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines provided with unique identifiers (UIDs) and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction, real-time analytics, machine learning, commodity sensors, and embedded systems.Traditional fields of embedded systems, wireless sensor networks, control systems, automation (including home and building automation), and others all contribute to enabling the Internet of things. In the consumer market, IoT technology is most synonymous with products pertaining to the concept of the "smart home",

 This is the latest revision of the basic Arduino USB board. It connects to the computer with a standard USB cable and contains everything else you need to program and use the board. It can be extended with a variety of shields: custom daughter-boards with specific features. It is similar to the Duemilanove, but has a different USB-to-serial chip the ATMega8U2, and newly designed labeling to make inputs and outputs easier to identify.

The Raspberry Pi is a series of small single-board computers developed in the United Kingdom by the Raspberry Pi Foundation to promote teaching of basic computer science in schools and in developing countries based on Python programming language.The original model became far more popular than anticipated, selling outside its target market for uses such as robotics. It does not include peripherals (such as keyboards and mice) or cases. However, some accessories have been included in several official and unofficial bundles.
