The VSB Learning Network is a
district-wide initiative designed to provide opportunities for senior
secondary students to complete regular, secondary school courses online.
Online courses give students
flexibility and control over their own learning experiences. Students can access these courses from any
Internet- connected computer, at any time.
However, there is a course schedule with required deadlines for the
course assignments and online discussions. These schedules and deadlines
will help students organize and manage their learning.
Students in these courses interact
online with others to actively construct knowledge by sharing and building upon
the ideas of their peers and their teachers.
Through problem and project based learning, cooperative on-line study,
critical thinking, and use of the networked technologies, students will
experience a unique way of study.
