eKids | Online English for Children is designed as a very fun and interesting environment for children aged 6-12 to learn English almost online. eKids is the one-stop-shop solution for children at all English levels from Starters to Flyers for the positive development of learners across all skills.

Children at eKids experience a complete professional learning process just as they are learning at a high-end English school. The curriculum is developed in the way that students not only can study but also actively enjoy and engage.
IBI Flipped Learning
The above chart has shown how the online learning was flipped based on the harmonious combination between IBI self-pace learning - eClasses, IBI live classroom - eConversations and 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 to study reading, listening, writing and pronunciation skills whilst can write write down questions related to their eClasses lessons, then get feedback 24/7 from the teachers at their own space or at least prepared to ask these questions in their eConversations. 
 
eClasses is designed based on the innovative combination between workbook method and repetition method not only educative, but also fun for children to learn!
 
IBI authoring tool - eTeractive makes it earier to transfer the knowledge to students based on real world eLearning activities to actively engage learners with the lessons. In this way, students not only acquire the lessons 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. Thanks to a wide range of powerful features and useful tools - interactive whiteboards, text chatting and teacher-managed control options - our teachers are able to optimize our teaching method to dynamically lead the live class via group discussion, learning activities (educational games, quizzes, board games, jeopardy etc.) and team competition.

  • Convenience: IBI's LMS was built with high level of automation and personalization that allows students to enroll, choose schedules, register and take classes INDEPENDENTLY;
     
  • Customization: eConversations can be customized based on the requirements of your organization’s real-world challenges. It can help develop productive new networks among employees;
     
  • Class size: Small class size with six students per class. Based on careful researches and observations by our experts, this is the ideal number to make the most of live online learning since it enables to build stronger relationships among students as well as between teacher and students. Moreover, it promotes peer learning.

     
3. Outdoor Learning:

IBI outdoor learning program (I-Innovation) offers a valuable experience for students to draw on several different aspects of learning through innovation projects; it enables students 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 students are also encouraged to become confident and involved learners by 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.
