On Tuesday, WhiteHat Jr has signed up in collaboration with 500 schools nationally, on behalf of more than 1.25 lakh students who are on the verge to learn the intricacies of coding through a conglomerate of the latest curriculum.
The company bluntly aims to guide 1 million students via the ‘physical-digital blended model’ for the upcoming academic session, a statement said. This conglomerate programme joins in the blended model of WhiteHat Jr’s online platform along with a classroom model, to propagate improved learning methods and create a better space for learning.
“Leveraging the strong in-bound, WhiteHat Jr has signed up 500 schools across the country, representing more than 1.25 lakh students who will learn coding through the blended curriculum,” added Karan Bajaj, CEO and WhiteHat Jr founder.
He reportedly said to PTI that, “By expanding our proprietary curriculum from a personalised setting to a public environment, we have the potential to impact the lives of children from every stratum of society. This pioneering physical-digital blended program was conceptualised keeping in view the unique demands of Bharat.”
Nevertheless, this coding venture will serve as a precedent and can be adjusted to suit the requirements of schools, said Bajaj. “Moreover, WhiteHat Jr can train school faculty or have WhiteHat Jr’s locally-based teachers, he added. The programme confers three key characteristics– proprietary curriculum, physical-cum-digital access, and teacher training programme.
He also proclaimed the rising numbers that his company is witnessing through this venture. Over 500 schools from 245 cities across 24 states and union territories have already signed in for this course and more are on the count.
