Have you made the switch to Virtual?

With the necessity of social distancing in the time of COVID, it is important that we offer students avenues that allow for learning to continue so that they may experience minimal disruption to their day-to-day. It is imperative that we help students retain some form of normalcy by still providing opportunities to connect with other students and educators – this will give them a sense of connection amidst all the changes they are experiencing. We believe that keeping children engaged in meaningful learning experiences while at home during this time, will help them improve and maintain the skills they will need to stay ahead of the curve so that they are ready to begin the 2021 school year with a competitive advantage.

Make the switch

Our Academic and Learning Design teams collaborated to create a Virtual Learning Programme that seeks to inspire each child with the joy of learning, remotely. The programme provides access  to Academic, Leadership, Innovation and Enrichment classes.

At Nova Pioneer, we are inspired to engage the natural curiosity of the student to create rich learning opportunities, where the teacher is the co-collaborator along with the student. Learners are invited to ask “why”, to share theories, discuss possibilities, and research outcomes in groups and with teachers. We focus on ensuring that our students are learning to think and behave like innovators and leaders. Our lessons are designed to promote confidence and communication, and all students work on solving real world problems. 

The programme is currently a 3-month long programme that will begin in September and end in November 2020.

My husband and I are both teachers in a public secondary school. The school closures have meant that we are not able to affect our mandate. This has given me the opportunity to take a front row seat at witnessing the Nova Pioneer virtual classes. I have been engaged and wildly excited with all the lessons and just by how much work has gone into making them interactive and involving. The way the lessons have been designed with the learner in mind and how to evoke their senses speaks to a high level of learning design excellence. It has also been very heartwarming to see how teachers go out of their way in ensuring their students get full support.
