eKids

eKids | Online English for Children was designed as a very fun and interesting environment for children aged 7-12 to learn English almost online. eKids is the one-stop-shop solution for children at all English levels from Starters to Flyers to develop all of their English skills. 

The curriculum was developed based on The Common Core State Standards for English language arts (CCSSI-ELA) to put creativity and innovation in the learning environment.
 
The instructional design was based on the harmonious combination between IBI self-pace learning -  eClasses, IBI live classroom training - eConversations and curriculum integrated Outdoor Activities Program. This is the great merger of innovation pedagogy and advanced technology to help children develop all their English skills as desired needless to attending any classroom training. 
 
Children at eKids experience a complete professional learning process just as they learn at a high-end physical school. Our curriculum was developed in the way that students not only learn but also entertain – enjoy - engage: 
The above chart has shown how the online classroom was flipped based on the harmonious combination between IBI self -pace learning - eClasses, IBI live classroom - eConversations and curriculum integrated outdoor activities:
 
1. eClasses: 
 
Students learn interactive lessons with IBI self-pace learning courses - eClasses before joining eConversations to collaborate with real teachers and peers for discussions, sharing ideas and playing games. 
 
This process helps students write down or ask questions about the content of the lessons and get feedbacks 24/7 from IBI’s teachers at home or are already prepared to ask these questions to their teachers in their eConversations. 
 
eClasses were designed based on the innovative combination between workbook method and repetition method which is not only educative, but also fun for children to learn. IBI authoring tool - eTeractive helps transfer knowledge to students by practicing it through exercises. This way, students not only remember what they have acquired fastest but also amusing to use.
 
 
2. eConversations: 
 
eConversations is the environment that helps students practice and use the knowledge they have learnt from eClasses efficiently and effectively. 
 
  • Collaboration: IBI's Cloud-based Real Time Communication - eConversations allows students and teachers to interact LIVE on a personal and group level equipped with powerful features and range of useful tools such as interactive whiteboards, text chatting, and teacher-managed control options. Based on these features, our teachers, combine with our teaching method to lead the live class dynamically through applying group discussion, learning activities such (serious games, quizzes, board games, jeopardy...) and team competition. 
     
  • Convenience: IBI's LMS was built with high level of automation and personalization in which students can enroll, choose schedules, register and take classes INDEPENDENTLY;
     
  • Class size: Small class size with 6 students / class. This number is an ideal number to learn live online that was carefully studied by our experts as it not only gives students more collaborative time but also promotes peer learning
 
3. Outdoor Learning: 
 
By integrating excursion program into our curriculum, students are encouraged to apply what they have learnt into real life. 
 
IBI outdoor learning program offers a valuable experience for the children to draw on several different aspects of learning; it enables children to respond to the diversities with the people they see and the different environment they are involved in. It is also essential for educators to guide their joy in being part of the world offered outside our doors.
 
The children are encouraged to become confident and involved learners by doing different small innovation projects and such further developing their dispositions for learning such as curiosity, cooperation, confidence, creativity, commitment, enthusiasm, persistence, imagination and reflexivity.

Personalized Learning Just Happens In a Proper Flipped Learning Framework

In order to support pathways, classroom instruction needs to focus on each learner and adapt according to their needs. By personalizing classroom instruction students will learn in ways that work for them, focusing on their skills and personal interests.
