Robinson School aims to be an example of 21st century education and technology implementation in the classroom. Our virtual learning curriculum aligns with our shared understanding of Robinson School’s approach to education. Technology provides an international learning environment that aligns with our International Baccalaureate vision, which is grounded in real-life knowledge, problem-solving and global connections. Our teachers transform their classroom into the virtual school experience, using technology tools that elevate teaching and learning through collaboration, online assignment, online discussion, video, audio, and more.
Robinson School’s Virtual Learning uses the CANVAS platform to organize all the teaching and learning activities in school on a daily bases and also gives us the capability of becoming a virtual school. CANVAS is one of the most widely used platforms in colleges and universities, therefore, we are preparing students to learn and interact with their academic programs using a tool that they would likely use in their graduate studies.
