About Artstra 關於藝思淘

The Artstra group of companies are involved in music education, music technology and STEAM education with the mission of broadening the horizons of children and youths through bringing to them the best opportunities of the West and East worlds to learn, grow and prosper.  

Artstra was first founded in 2009 with a mission to deliver music and instrumental training courses for music-loving children and young people. The "ArtstrA" brand name was first created at the founding stage to aim at providing students with a platform that not just to learn music happily but also to develop their multiple intelligences through music.

The rapid pace of development in the economy, education and cultural life of the Greater China Region in recent years has driven huge demand for a whole range of music education courses. Our Group is deeply convinced that music education in the new Century is becoming globalized in such a way that if we can grasp the exchange of East-West cultural world, and the benefit of Internet and advanced information technology, we will certainly be able to bring valuable opportunities to the future generations to learn better, both for their whole-person development as well as music career at large. These changes we witnessed have prompted our Group to foster diversification in the services we provide to keep ourselves abreast with the times.

The Group’s another initiatives is to engage on research development of the proprietary music rhythmic training application "BomBomBak". With the valuable comments gathered from music educators, the Group has started to develop the brand new online music teaching system "MusGarden Classroom"; which represents our Group’s commitment to responding to the calls from the Greater China Region for quality and innovation.

Recently, the education sector and parents have all paid extra attention to STEAM/STEM Education in Hong Kong, hoping to jump on a speed wagon to bring benefits to their students and children. While the scope of STEAM education is so wide, most of us are figuring the “what” and “how” questions such that students can achieve the best learning outcome?

To this end, we will hold two expos at the end of June 2018 by inviting all schools in Hong Kong to come and visit us, have a glimpse of a number of pinoneering educational technology solutions, including a few of mini robots and robotic courses, rhythm online teaching system, interactive multi-touch display, campus TV, STEM lab, Code Club and etc.

Artstra took up sole distributorship from the Edinburgh University originated Robotical to introduce the mini walking robot "Marty the Robot" to Hong Kong education sector. Marty's advantage of "Open-design" philosophy ensures everything from electronics to the 3-D-printable mechanical parts of the robot can be modified by kids, makers and educators. Marty the Robot has made the learning of the art of programming, robotics, electronics and mechanical design possible and not costly at all for beginners. 

In the coming days, the Group will spare no efforts to develop and implement online teaching systems, music competitions and exchange programmes, as well as introducing affordable music and STEAM contents, software and hardware for local and neighboring areas to meet their needs of quality education.

 

藝思淘集團的服務範圍涵蓋音樂教育、音樂科技以及STEAM教育,我們的使命是開拓兒童和青少年的視野,為他們提供向東、西方世界汲取知識泉源的機會,讓他們成為愛學習和出類拔萃的人。

藝思淘集團𣄃下公司於2009年開始成立,為喜愛音樂的孩子及青少年提供音樂學習及樂器訓練課程。早期創立「樂童 -Ÿ 同樂」的品牌,以為學童提供快樂的音樂學習平台、以及藉音樂作為媒介發展孩子多元智能為服務宗旨。

近數年大中華區在經濟、教育及文化生活的飛躍發展,帶動了對音樂教育在量和質的需求。我們團隊深信,新世紀的音樂教育正趨向全球化,當中若能把握東西文化的交匯互通,充份利用互聯網和先進資訊科技,定能令新生世代把握到更有利的學習條件,學得更優秀出色,對個人發展以至音樂事業都有所促進。

我們的另一新猷是主力研發節奏訓練用途的應用程式軟件 “BomBomBak,廣集了教育界人士的寶貴意見,着手開發一個嶄新的線上音樂教學系統「音樂園教室」,正好代表了我們團隊回應大中華地區對音樂教育需求而作出的努力。

近來,教育界和家長們都加倍關注香港的STEAM/STEM Education 起來,希望急起直追,為莘莘學子帶來裨益。STEAM教育的範疇廣闊,究竟怎樣的內涵方能令學生有所得著?我們希望在這方面出一分力,提供包含產品、課程、師資培訓、學習經歷規劃等多方面的教育方案,讓學校多一點選擇和參考。為此,我們在2018年6月底舉辦了兩場展示日,邀請全港學校到來參觀一些嶄新的教育科技方案,包括多款小機械人課程、音樂園教室節奏線上教學系統、互動多點觸控顯示屏、校園電視台、STEM Lab、Code Club等。

藝思淘從起源於英國愛丁堡大學的Robotical公司獲得香港的獨家代理權,把迷你步行機器人“Marty the Robot”引入香港教育界別。 Marty示範了「開放式設計」理念的優勢,能確保孩子、搭建者和教育工作者都可以把機械人身上由電子部件以至三維打印機械部件進行自主修改和設計。 對於初學者來說,Marty the Robot提供了學習編程、機械人原理、電子機械和設計一個簡易而經濟高效的途徑。

在未來的日子裡,我們將繼續致力推動線上教學系統、舉辦音樂比賽、交流,以及提供音樂和STEAM 相關的教育內容、軟件和硬件,為本地及鄰近地區引入質量和價格兼佳的樂器和設備品牌等,以滿足社會對優質教育的渴求。
