Learners work through online exercises and facilitators are on demand to answer questions. A facilitator’s role is to motivate, encourage and guide. A facilitator’s role is not to give every answer to learners, but rather to stimulate critical thinking and effective problem solving by guiding learners toward asking better questions that will lead them to solutions. Facilitators are role models to our young learners and are expected to share their experience as students in STEM study fields.
Responsibilities of a facilitator:+ Assist the Lead Facilitator in teaching coding classes+ Assist in assessing and recording learning outcomes+ Ensure the smooth running of classes: catering logistics, allocate transport stipends, communicate with learners who are late/absent, be responsible for having emergency contact details of all learners in the case of an emergency, handle petty cash)
