WHAT IS A LEARNING POD?
A Learning Pod is a small group of two to six students who complete distance learning assignments at home with the support of an in-person instructor. This structured setting provides the extra help families need to meet the academic needs of students under remote learning. Topics covered will be based on the curriculum followed by your child’s school as well as innovative techniques based on STEAM curriculum. Our program develops your child’s creative, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills.
How It Works
1. Create A Customizable Pod
A parent creates a Pod for a group of students who are usually in the same grade at their school. We offer distant learning pods, micro-school pods, and enrichment pods.
2. Match Instructor With A Pod
STEAM Mum x SciTech Kids matches an instructor with the Pod based on the needs of students in the group. Instructors are trained by Kim Magloire, founder, an expert in best practices of blended learning and STEAM education.
3. Schedule A Pod
The Pod selects either a full-time or part-time program. A full-time program typically runs from 9 am to 2 pm. Pods are usually five days a week. Blended learning Pods are two or three days a week based on the number of days their child’s school offers remote learning.
4. Select Location of Pod
The Pod can be held at your home, in one of our facilities, or remotely.
