VISPARK, an online education service featuring small-group and interactive classes for 5-12-year-old children, is embracing 2023 and celebrating its impressive accomplishments in 2022 together with teachers, students, and parents. Striving to bring the best learning experience in foundational math learning for students everywhere, there was much to celebrate in 2022 including the launch of Spark Math in June, the VISPARK and Marshall Cavendish Education (MCE) strategic partnership in July, and recognition from the prestigious Edtech Asia Summit for Best Interactive Learning Experience award, which has attracted students from all over the world.

“Spark Math extends its gratitude to all students and teachers for their outstanding results in 2022 and looks forward to continuing to support their educational journey in 2023,” said Peter Neo, Director of Teaching Operations and Services at VISPARK. “Our small class sizes and proprietary software, which incorporates interactive animations into course material, aid in visualising complex mathematical concepts and fostering logical thinking by allowing students to see connections between different concepts and ideas. We have seen many parents feeling the online learning experience may not be effective for their child. What VISPARK brought to students in 2022 is a proprietary programme designed or the online environment in small class sizes using meaningful conceptual animation integrated into courseware content that has been proven to engage students with effective and interactive features, making the online learning experience better than offline.”

Cheryl Wong, K2 Teacher, and Math Curriculum Specialist with VISPARK, said: “VISPARK emphasises the deep learning, the understanding and the fundamentals of math. We take kids’ curiosity and embed math and logical puzzles and games to stimulate their learning. “

Heading into 2023, VISPARK will continue to implement cutting-edge technologies to create science-based, student-centric interactive learning tools. The Spark Math Programme will carry on enhancing interest-based courses and in June, Level 6 will be launched in the U.S. A new and innovative personalised online practice offering will also launch in April to address the demand for even more individualised learning needs and further improve learning outcomes.

In March, the Competition Programme, along with MCE and other math organisations, will jointly launch high-end mathematics camps in Singapore. The goal is to provide a high-quality communication platform for children to enter ROSS Mathematics Programme, Stanford University Mathematics Camp (SUMaC), Programme in Mathematics for Young Scientists (PROMYS), AwesomeMath, among others. In June, Spark Math Competition Programme will hold the second annual Spark Cup Global Sudoku Challenge. We will also be introducing more STEAM, culture, and global citizenship themes in the senior grades of the programme to help expand perspectives of our students in the 21st century.
