Many of us grew up studying in traditional classroom environments. More recently however we have come to appreciate that not all students can excel in such an environment. Indeed a traditional “bricks and mortar” school environment will not meet all the learning needs for some students.
In recent years, there has been an explosion of online learning options for students and parents to consider as alternative approaches to education.
But how do you make a good choice that will truly help drive success?
The key to choosing well lies in finding options that provide engaging lessons that stimulate higher-order thinking in the learner, while ensuring plenty of support when help is needed. It is absolutely critical to ensure any on-line education platform offers enriching courses & activities that allows that students are able to link new information to old information and thus acquire meaningful knowledge.
At Onstudy Academy, we take pride in the development of engaging video lessons that contain meaningful and relevant information, simulations that facilitate the understanding of complex mathematical and scientific processes and the creating of assessment tools that help students perform well in all four areas of assessment: knowledge/understanding, thinking, communication and application.
Onstudy Academy online courses offers valuable benefits including:
- Accessing the course material anytime and anywhere
- Communicating with teachers and other students while online
- Ability to go over complex concepts and processes as many times as needed
- Receiving feedback from teacher in a prompt manner.
- Interact with models and simulations to better understand material and thus achieve learning goals
- Complete course requirements while still attending regular school or extra-curricular activities
- Reduction of anxiety and stress, as students set their own pace.
