Effective Online Learning: How do we ensure that our students are learning safely online at Sophia High School?
As an online British School offering a digitally delivered education in our online primary school (Year 1 to Year 6) and online secondary school (Year 7 to Year 9) we place great emphasis on ensuring that all of our students understand how to learn effectively online.
Sophia High School prides itself on our online safeguarding policies and procedures and our commitment as an online school to providing a digitally native curriculum. We put online safety, mental health and the development of personal goals and growth of our students as mindful learners at the heart of all we deliver. Our partnership with Google for Education provides a safe, secure and trusted platform for the delivery of our online curriculum and live interactive lessons led by our master teachers.
At the start of the Autumn Term all of our students in the primary and secondary school will explore the digital online world we live in by discovering the many ways in which we use digital devices, networks and the internet – and finding out how all these elements link together to create the connected world which we live in?
Within this IPC and IMYC unit, we will be gaining a deeper understanding of what the internet is, how it works and how we should use it both responsibly and effectively. We will deepen our understanding of how to be safe online and develop our awareness of what is real and what is fake on the internet.
This important unit not only will develop the fundamental skills our students will use when engaging with our Google for Education Anywhere Classroom tools that we use as part of our digital education programme, but also will ensure that our students learn effectively and safely online.
This is Education Reimagined.
