IT Program

HEDCen StudentsWe believe that Multimedia and Information Technology is a tool used for research, for communicating, and for creating -- - no matter what one’s chosen profession. Competence in IT ups one’s game and broadens chances for good opportunities in their chosen field. A student equipped with the know-how for IT while provided with proper guidance alongside high-level education raises more responsible and intelligent users. HEDCen in partnership with iCarnegie Global Learning (powered by Carnegie Mellon University, a world leader in the field of Computer Science and Robotics) will empower children with skills in Information Technology through its internationally competitive IT curriculum in SY 2016-2017. HEDCen is presently 1 out of 3 schools in the Philippines to offer this program.

Benefits

The program is more than learning to program. It’s about learning how to succeed in a high-technology and socially-connected world. It’s about embracing exploration, discovery, allowing for collaboration and problem-solving. Unlike coding programs that teach short programming courses or computer architecture concepts, iCarnegie’s STEM Computer Science and Coding Program is a whole classroom solution that will teach your child to apply the skills learned to everyday life.

Instruction

The program will involve teaching coding to our students from Grade 1 until Grade 10 using HEDCen’s pedagogy of learning-by-doing instruction. Our students will then learn to program through the making of animation, games, and such other interactive applications.

Holistic

The Program will make up the new Multimedia and Information Technology Program. We are giving the same level of importance to this program as all of the other subjects, from our sciences to our physical education class.

Certification

Successfully completing an iCarnegie course certification exam (both comprehensive and practical) earns your child an iCarnegie certification and certificate, in addition to their regular HEDCen credit, indicating a solid graduate ready for further education or employment.
