Our creative learning research group is giving back to the community by acting and researching within the field of education and technology. Our focus is to give children the tools to become creative adults who will fulfill an active role in their communities. We empower children to learn by themselves, not in standard classrooms and with minimum dependency on formal instructions. We also encourage them to follow their interest and passion. Through a safe environment of trial and error, children learn to create using technologies.
