Virtual Learning for Grades 4-9 is designed to be student-centered, authentic and engaging. Videos and interactive activities are embedded throughout the lessons, as are opportunities for hands-on learning, such as science labs. Many projects give students the opportunity to choose how they demonstrate their learning, which allows them to use their strengths and talents. For example, some students might demonstrate their understanding of a concept by creating a video, while others might choose to write, draw or build.
Lessons and activities will be delivered online through Schoology, which enables students to work at their own pace and have flexibility in completing coursework at a time that works best for them. Students are expected to connect weekly with teachers through Google Meets, email and/or phone, or by submitting coursework. Teachers provide students with feedback and guide them on their learning journey. For those who would like more structure in their day, a suggested learning schedule can be provided.
