NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, March 11, 2020 / -- The education technology company, LeapLearner, recently partnered with government leaders in Bhutan, including both His Majesty, King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck and Prime Minister, Lotay Tsheringof, in order to bring 21st century skills to students across the country. Understanding the important role coding languages play in our tech-powered world, LeapLearner joined forces with Bhutan’s Ministry of Education to begin training the first cohort of teachers using the company’s curriculum and online learning platform.

By using a 2-tiered teacher training program wherein the country’s top educators complete LeapLearner’s training program and then work to train their colleagues across the country, Bhutan will be set to launch coding curriculum in over 100 schools in March 2020. Through continuous growth and scaling up of the program, Bhutan’s Ministry of Education expects to integrate coding into every school in the country by 2021. This translates to over 170,000 students acquiring this critical 21st century skill in 2021 alone.

In addition to the nationwide coding education program, LeapLearner has also launched a pilot program teaching Bhutan’s university students and graduates to develop using the Unity gaming platform. Unity is the world’s most popular 3D games engine and talented developers are in high demand. According to His Majesty, King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, this growing partnership with LeapLearner is part of a larger vision of helping the country “skillfully navigate the new digital and technological landscape.”
