OUR The education system needs a revolution to bring us up to par with our global competitors. Our weakest link is the command of the language, especially English as it is the language of international communication.
If we can teach our children to read newspapers by the age of six, we can be way ahead of our competitors. Many of our local graduate students even have difficulty reading an English newspaper like theSun. The common myth is that only child geniuses can read newspapers by the age of six.
I recently met Grace Chow, who did this with her students in her kindergarten. She did extensive research to bring out her trademarked system called Activbot, combining the best of AI (Artificial Intelligence), Internet of Things, phonics, multiple intelligence, multi-sensory learning and brain research.
The three main languages to be spoken in Malaysia are English, Mandarin and Bahasa Melayu. This is what the Activbot system teaches. Even babies as young as one year old can learn from Activbot. In fact, studies have found that babies’ brains are the best learning machines ever created and that infant learning is time-sensitive. Your brain will never be better at learning a second language until the age of three,” said co-author Patricia Kuhl, co-director of I-LABS and professor of language and hearing sciences at the University of Washington.
You don’t have to force your child. The Activbot system comes along with an AI pen, a playful little robot and online learning – your child will naturally want to learn in a fun and exciting way.
Activbot is probably the best language learning system for your child because:
-> It’s fun, kid-friendly and self-paced;
-> It learns through play;
-> It follows World Health Organization guidelines on digital learning;
-> Uses the Jolly Phonics system and learns sounds instead of words;
-> Introduces the use of high frequency words;
-> Uses a microphone for reading to build trust. kids love that.
-> Adopts a multi-sensory and multi-intelligent approach;
-> Increases learning speed and effectiveness through digital technology.
Grace has been invited to participate in the “Kind 2023 Malaysia” exhibition with the theme “Kindness Unites Humanity” taking place today and tomorrow. Visitors can meet six-year-old Aiden Lim reading the newspaper after working with Activbot for six months. Another of Grace’s students, Jaseindran, went from being a reclusive boy to a medical student at a local university.
Grace recommends books that teach a child to ask questions – a requirement for HIT (Higher Intelligence Thinking), which promotes STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education, in line with the goal of our Department of Education.
She is passionate about helping the B40 children. She has also trained teachers to use the Activbot system for charities such as The Salvation Army and The Ti-Ratana Charity Society. She is open to helping other children’s charities and asks companies to sponsor this endeavor.
