At Elians, we recognise that the goal of online teaching and learning is not to try to recreate face-to-face classrooms, but to provide opportunities for our learners to embark on an interactive learning journey, where they work more independently, beyond the classroom, and learn to use tools and strategies that prepare them for the world of tomorrow.
By carefully selecting age-appropriate virtual learning environments, our students are given the opportunity to attend synchronous classes, complete online tasks and assignments, and receive the same top quality education they do in our physical classroom environments. Class Dojo allows our youngest students to continue learning at home, with the support of their parents, and to create a digital portfolio of their achievements. Google Classroom provides a structured virtual learning environment, tailored to the needs of our older students, allowing them to develop and master digital skills. For our Secondary students in particular, Google Classroom allows them a taste of University-style learning to whet their appetite for knowledge.
We strongly believe that giving our students the opportunity to learn online in our tailor-made virtual courses supports and encourages them to become lifelong learners and prepares them for the world outside of our school gates.
