Israel-based LeapLearner, considered the largest coding company in the world, has started operations in Dubai following the diplomatic ties announced between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.
The company has developed a platform shared between nearly 200,000 Israeli and Emirati students to learn computational thinking and algorithmic intelligence, coding, app development, robotics, AI, machine learning and logic.
LeapLearner has built a platform capable of equipping millions of children with the ability to self-learn the skills they need to succeed and the coding ability to address the challenges of the future. The company's cutting-edge, online/offline platform aims to cultivate self-learning and 21st-century skills among students worldwide and prepare them for the world of tomorrow.
The curriculum is designed for children aged 5 to 12, and uses the feedback-loop and problem-solving nature of coding in order to develop self-learning abilities. The program begins with teaching kids how to hack video games and moves into simple natural language coding before transitioning into Java script.
Ultimately, students are taught to build and share their own video games with others. As production and repetition-based jobs become obsolete, LeapLearner users will be able to self-learn new skills and problem-solve through uncharted territory in order to succeed.
