No theoretical classes or exams. You'll be learning to program from day one.
100% PROJECT-BASED LEARNING
Learn by putting everything into practice. At Ubiqum Code Academy there are no formal lectures, graded exams, or teachers. Instead, by your side, are mentors who are 100% invested in your learning process. Our methodology is 100% “learn by doing”, meaning that, from day one, you’ll be learning to program how you really learn: by writing code. All our programs are made up of projects that simulate real professional life, meaning that, once completed, you’ll be prepared to face the everyday challenges encountered in the world of web development or data analytics.
Each student has different skills, abilities, and learning paces. Our coding bootcamps are specially designed to adapt to all needs and allow you to go from “I have no idea how to code” to becoming a programmer in just 5 months. We know WHAT you need to learn because we have asked the most advanced technology companies what processes, tools, and languages they use, and we have incorporated them into our career programs. And we know HOW to teach you how to program because Ubiqum’s methods and learning processes have been developed by specialists with more than 30 years of experience in digital education and learning sciences.
THE STUDENT LEARNING CYCLE
Step 1: PlanThe first step will be to plan your day. For this, each morning you will have an Agile "stand up meeting" with your mentor in which you will outline the key activities of the day.
Step 2: DoOnce the tasks have been defined, it's time to get to work. In Ubiqum you learn by doing, executing each task in test-error mode and always with the personalised support of your mentor.
Step 3: FeedbackOne of the most important stages in the learning process is carrying out "code reviews", which are meetings that you will have with your mentor or your entire development team periodically throughout the course. In these reviews, you will receive tips on how to polish your initial code and be able to finish the task on time, with the best possible result.
Step 4: IterateIn programming, it is said that a developer's work is "10% creation and 90% improvement". Based on the feedback received, you must implement the relevant improvements. This fourth and last step, the iteration, is vital to improving the first version of the code and be able to deliver the website, app, or your analytical project, with the highest possible quality.
Ubiqum’s programs have been expertly designed and continue to be developed by one of the world’s leading visionaries in artificial intelligence, learning theory, and cognitive science, Dr. Roger Schank.
Schank is the founder of the renowned Institute of Learning Sciences (Institute for the Learning Sciences) and was professor of computer science and psychology at Yale University, as well as being director of the Artificial Intelligence Project at the university.
Currently, Dr. Schank is the president and CEO of Socratic Arts, a company that develops educational programs for companies and universities, and lectures in the main forums on education in the 21st century. In 2010 and 2011 he was chosen as one of the 10 most influential people in the world in the field of digital learning.
