The words of Jean Piaget remind us that, “The principle goal of education in the schools should be creating women and men who are capable of doing new things, not simply repeating what other generations have done; men and women who are creative, inventive and discoverers, who can be critical and verify, and not accept, everything they are offered.”
Here at 01, we have created an environment that challenges our students to think for themselves and take ownership over their learning. Our passion for technology and hands-on learning are at the core of our pedagogy and values.
Empowerment - To understand how the designed components of the world work, and who and what they impact, is to be able to assume an active rather than a passive role in life.
Sensitivity to Design - Being attuned to the designed dimension of objects and systems, with an understanding that the designed world is malleable.
Teamwork & Collaboration - We encourage students to take leadership and follow their own paths. To work together and share responsibility.
Learning & Exploration - Our students are curious about the world, curious about their own capacities. We push them to reflect and go beyond comfort zones.
Self-Awareness & Expression - A student's awareness and expression on his or her humanity promotes empathy and understanding to others.
Sustainability - An understanding that developing the created world in a prudent way is the best way of caring for it.
