Four years ago, our district created Independent Learning Centers (ILC’s) at each of our high schools as students were given the choice to receive an ILC block(s) as part of their regular timetable. During these blocks students are given access to a computer lab where, with the assistance of a classroom teacher, they work independently on courses offered through a variety of DL platforms and institutions. Dwayne (DL Student Support teacher) and I (ILC teacher) will share our challenges and successes, and explain how the relationship between the bricks and mortar school and the online school continues to evolve as we work together to provide students with more choice in courses, pace and learning styles in order to better meet their needs. ILC students will also share their experiences.
Where regular schools struggle to provide flexibility and adapt to the intensive training, competition and performance requirements that are demanded of high-performance athletes, we excel. You need a flexible learning schedule that works around your routine – we get that. Navigate (NIDES), as one of BC’s premier online learning institutions, has a long history of supporting high-performance athletes, dancers and youth doing specialized training. We know that the standard courses seldom reflect these student’s unique passions and interests. Enter PACE! PACE gives students the freedom and flexibility to make their education work for them, with four distinct options for high-performance students.Curated Notes
