At Archbishop Curley-Notre Dame Prep, the One to One Learning Program is flipping the classroom on its head as teachers no longer lecture and students are responsible for mastering class material through guided independent study.
Teachers become coaches, first by laying out academic goals, then helping each student write his or her own Individual Learning Plan to achieve those goals, and finally guiding the plan’s implementation throughout the term.
Working hand in hand with the school, students take control of their own learning while gaining time management skills, strong study habits and confidence.
Rather than sitting back during lectures, students discover the information on their own, and have instant one-on-one time with their teacher. As they move from a teacher dependent model to one where students are autonomous, teachers are freed to tap into a student’s individual learning styles, and students are encouraged to incorporate areas of personal interest.
During regularly scheduled classes students complete most of their homework, study in groups, and give presentations. Grades are still earned, essays written and tests taken as students prepare for college.
Each student is issued an Apple iPad for 24/7 access to electronic books, internet resources, and to Qino,
Cloud storage for their learning plan and grades.
The portal Showbie allows paperless submission of documents and homework.
