At School 42 Jakarta, we bring new ways of learning for students.
Unlike any other conventional schools, students will be involved
in exciting collaborative projects by implementing the best strategies
from 25 years of pedagogy experience:
Through peer-to-peer pedagogy, students are free to learn, explore and share information to strengthen their skills. No classes, no teacher, they can be both the trainer and the learner as they work in group. They are in charge of their own and their classmates’ success. This peer-to-peer learning method is adaptable to real business operation as it creates collective intelligence.
Gamification and Progression
We invite our students to learn in a fun way. The progression of each student is represented by levels of experience inspired by video games. They need to develop their skills through the proposed projects and they can level up upon project completion. Once a project is completed, they can unlock another project and receive gamification rewards for each challenge.
We understand that every student is unique and has their own learning pace. We allow them to study and complete the project in their own time. Their progresses are not based on class but on themselves. Our program is 100% individualized with 3-year expected time of completion.
