What Virtual Learning Looks Like at BFIS

Friday, April 24, 2020

Virtual Learning is more than just sending videos to students for them to watch or homework they need to submit. No, it is certainly much more than that. Following the BFIS strategic plan directions, some years ago, our school started to develop online teaching and learning platforms, implementing cutting-edge technology and a 1:1 computer program. When the Covid19 crisis hit the planet, BFIS was well prepared to move from the traditional classroom to virtual learning. In January 2020 our Senior Leadership Team anticipating what was about to come, began to plan the transition to online classes, providing intensive training for our teachers and implementing some new software to run virtual classes. Our first days of virtual learning were a bit bumpy but we are making appropriate changes as we are advancing with the program.

Obviously, a virtual school experience is very different for a student in Elementary School than it is for a Middle and High School Student. Our plan and framework takes into account different levels of independence and developmental levels. 

Students will maintain their current schedules with small modifications and the program will adapt to provide a varied mix of online and offline activities in every class.  If you want to take a look to our schedules for the 2019-2020 school year , please click in this link: https://www.bfischool.org/school-life/new-schedule-2019-2020
