Our Impact Around the World

CoolThink partner remix CoolThink curriculum and bring them to different regions of the world including US, New Zealand and Dubai.

Teacher training workshops using CoolThink customized and localized units have been conducted in Infosys Pathways of Indiana State University, National Math Science Initiative and National Academies Foundation in US.

CoolThink units have been used in Dubai with elements of inclusive AI for literacy and learning.

CoolThink@JC team is also planning to bring the curriculum and computational thinking education to the Greater Bay Area of China to support more teachers and students.

Evidence-based Independent Evaluation

Stanford Research Institute (SRI) has conducted a rigorous 3-year evaluation of the CoolThink pilot project between 2016 and 2019 and the progress made by its students. The report describes outcomes of the initiative for students, as well as the experiences of teachers and other participants, and offers a set of implications for other stakeholders who wish to build on the pilot’s successes and lessons.

Building on the pilot’s success, SRI will continue to evaluate the “How” and “Why” of CoolThink@JC as it plans to scale out and reach a large majority of primary schools in Hong Kong.
