InnovativeKids by AK Malta was conceived as an idea to promote INNOVATION and CREATIVITY through inter-disciplinary learning experiences aimed at 21st century knowledge and skills.

> MULTIDISCIPLINARY

In today and tomorrow’s world students require multidomain knowledge and skills. We break the mould of teaching by subject. Through our project-based system students are able to learn mathemathics, literacy and history through the arts. They are able to mix knowledge from different domains to come up with a creative solution or outcome.

 

> ORGANIC LEARNING

Our competence-oriented approach allows students to learn through their own mistakes, reflect and improve. It allows students the space and time for errors and correction. A system which aims to reshape how students portray Failure.

 

> INTEREST DRIVEN

Motivation like in anything else in life is a key aspect in a child’s learning experience. When learning is joyful and desirable, students are hungry to learn on their own, without outside persuasion
