Nothing is more important than thinking of creating a better and promising future for our children. A better foundation at an earlier age can build a creative dream towards a successful career.
We know kids now-a-days are more enthusiastic and crave for new experiences and challenges. They learn from experimentation. So, let's ignite young minds towards brighter future and create tomorrow's entrepreneurs.
In order to prepare our children for the future full of technology, QtPi has come up with "GENIE PLATFORM" where we get the recorded coding and robotics content having the customised Grade wise courses for Grade 1 to 12.

14) Why self learning platform for kids?
EdTech companies have brought in inclusivity and affordability from the traditional brick and mortar environment. In brick and mortar kids rely on other people to tell them what to do even when they grow up. The present generation will eventually move to online and might look for brick and mortar for hands-on activities like maker space. The young people understand the challenges per se in education, job opportunities and career. The internet presents social dynamics among their peers for the young generation. The argument is not to replace the brick and mortar experience but make it inclusive. As inclusiveness is not about being similar; it is about having similar experience despite differences. We learn to fight out the curiosity. It’s a feeling of deprivation that comes from “what we know” and “what we want to know”. Humans are constantly looking for ways out to fill this gap. Hence self learning platforms are the future for learning, sharing and unlearning.
15) Code.Org & YouTube are free. Why should one pay for some closed stuff which I don't understand?
Thanks for the wonderful question and its widespread one. This question brings to understanding that the coding adds value in many different areas of life such as engineering, medicine etc. This question also appreciates the fact of programming feels effortless once hooked and the learning combines logic, art, storytelling, and business. In simple words it helps us to think and create applications to make our lives better. The reasons why one need to opt for paid versus free:
- Bringing plethora of content in one platform is something like reading a published book, watching a movie in a hall. We spend time and money for an experience!
- At most one except from learners is to become knowledge constructors. In order to do so we need a source, knowledge creators.
- Assurance. One gets relevant and customised to suit the appropriate age group. This is true across several mediums such as Television content. Open source would mean a lot of hard work and research. This would require parental guidance, kids patience and a lot of time.
- As a learner, the focus is on the course, learning experience and outcome. Until one is keen in R & D.
- Content is king if that helps in achieving an objective.
- Learners often like to have extrinsic motivation where the work is visible, gets inputs to better the performance, and help the community.
We recommend using both kinds of content free and paid.
