Understandably, the prospect of your child having to physically attend school over the summer may sound undesirable to both your child and you. With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of flexible online options for students of all ages and that bring the opportunity of learning straight to your home. Check out what’s available for your child this summer:
Virtual teachers are not robots – I repeat – virtual teachers are not robots. At least this is the case at EdOptions Academy. The teachers are from your state, often from neighboring districts. They are licensed classroom teachers with at least three years of classroom experience, and they receive extensive training in online education and virtual instruction after joining the EdOptions Academy team.
The much-anticipated summer break is almost upon us. And, while most students will be attempting to forget about school, summer is the most opportune time to earn credits that are needed to catch up, explore something new, or even plan for the fall.
Recently, I had the pleasure of connecting with one of our Edmentum partners in Middlebury, Indiana, to gather some tried-and-true best practices from a blended learning program with a history of success. Lauren Bailey, the blended learning lab teacher at Northridge Middle School (NMS), leverages Edmentum Courseware for digital curriculum and EdOptions Academy for completely virtual courses in her blended learning lab.
Attempting to identify the best route for students to attain academic success is not a simple task. This is because students have such immensely different backgrounds and needs when it comes to their education journeys. The flexible program design of Edmentum’s EdOptions Academy allows students to create personalize pathways that best support their unique situation and needs.
The ISTE Standards provide a roadmap for educators worldwide as they navigate decisions about curriculum, instruction, professional learning, and technology, and EdOptions Academy has again been recognized as a valuable resource to help students acquire the skills that meet these standards.
