Online Learning Platform
Students and parents, in consultation with their homeroom teacher, will create a Student Learning Plan (SLP) that identifies learning outcomes and resources and helps to shape the student’s learning path for the year. SLP’s are meant to be flexible and thus can be revisited as often as is necessary.
Based on a student’s SLP the learning platform may take on a variety of different looks. The primary mode for communication with teacher will be via email and each teacher has a home page that can be accessed through the internet. A wide variety of resources including prescribed learning outcomes, recommended web sites and current news are accessible from these home pages.
Vclass sessions are a weekly event at EBUS and a great way for students to participate with other EBUS students and occasionally with students from around the world, all helping to create a strong sense of community.
Elementary students and their parents are now logging into Moodle, the learning platform for all students. Communication between students and teachers occurs within Moodle, as does the uploading and downloading of assignments and completed work.
