What is the schedule for the virtual classes in the E-Learning Program?
Available classes are morning and afternoon, you will be asked which one your prefer in the enrollment form. Classes will be 3 to 4 times a week, approximately 2 hours per class, depending on the grade level. The younger the level, the shorter the time for the virtual classes because we need to consider the screen time of the children. We will follow the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommendation on screen time limit for children.
Students are not going to face the screen all the day. Virtual classes will only be done during discussions, live demos, activities for social engagement and recitation. The rest of the time we will have recorded videos and uploaded activities that the students may access in their own time. They may opt to print the uploaded school work and do it in their own time.
What will the students do when they have no virtual class for the day?
They will still have to log-in our virtual school and accomplish the school work the teacher intended for the students for that day which may be done independently by the student.
How will assessments be given?
There are plenty of different types of assessment tools that may be given, it can be through an exam or output-based. It will still be the teacher who will deliver the assessment.
The Department of Education will also provide an assessment tool for every distance learning mode that schools will use for grading the students.
Can we access the virtual school in our own time?
Yes! Access to the learning portal is an advantage because you may do online activities and study in your own time. The students may review or even do advance learning using the recorded lessons and other available resources in the virtual school.
