“Online school is terrible.”
It doesn't have to be.
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced everyone to take on new roles and responsibilities. In the realm of education specifically, parents must now become more present and involved in their child’s day-to-day learning as the online school has its share of limitations. Students, too, experience a great deal of added anxiety and stress over the new learning system and the physical isolation from their friends. One factor which compounds the difficulty of online learning is the curriculum that relies heavily on teachers providing instruction. As such, students are not able to and are not accustomed to learning independently. This finds students struggling to understand the material and parents having to become teachers.
The basis of our school is an international Christian curriculum designed to be understood by students and therefore would make the at-home learning experience less stressful. Parents would not need to take on the role of a teacher because our modules were designed to be easily understood by students. The flexibility afforded by the modular system of our curriculum also means that it could adapt to any circumstances.
