What is Computational Thinking?

CoolThink@JC inspires students to use digital creativity in everyday lives and sharpen their skills to use technology for social good from an early age. Packed with interactive and fun lessons, the project prepares young aspirers for the ever-changing digital future.

Our impact on students

CoolThink@JC empowers students to create a digital future for social good from a young age. It offers equitable access to quality digital and technology learning, including computational thinking and AI, to every student. We ensure that all students experience meaningful technology learning, instead of merely attending an optional lesson or extra-curricular activity, in order to increase digital inclusiveness and narrow the digital divide.

Our impact on teachers

CoolThink@JC creates a mindset, cultural change and paradigm shift in teaching. Our unique pedagogy and training have transformed CoolThink teachers’ mentality – they are no longer the instructors of students, but facilitators who guides students through their learning. Our training is not exclusive to ICT teachers; Many of CoolThink teachers come from non-IT backgrounds.

Evidence-based Evaluation

CoolThink@JC engaged SRI International (SRI) to conduct an independent and rigorous evaluation for the project. These findings would provide stakeholders (policymakers, community leaders, educators and other grant-makers) with evidence-based justifications and wider insights on how to introduce a new education initiative.

SRI conducted a rigorous 3-year evaluation of the CoolThink pilot project between 2016 and 2019 and the progress made by its students.
SRI continues to evaluate the “How” and “Why” of the implementation of CoolThink@JC as it scales out to a large majority of primary schools in Hong Kong.
