EVOLVE was born out of an idea that every student should have access to every educational opportunity. Paul, a secondary Law teacher, scribed a few pages of how to make those opportunities available to any student anywhere.
Paul thought as the world is becoming a more technologically reliant place, the future of education needs to take this into consideration. Through online distance learning courses we are able to offer the courses students want to take regardless of their background or geographical location.
We can offer you and your students a number of benefits to enable you to be part of The Evolution of Education.
Education is a shared experience and small group classes allow for effective learning to take place. Our online live and interactive learning platform connect students with an interest in a particular subject to a teacher who has a passion for it. Our lessons are highly engaging, challenging yet supportive.
Lessons start with a five minute warm up task that allows students to prepare for the main teaching and learning stage of the lesson. Lesson activities encourage students to participate fully and feel comfortable and confident in sharing their views and work, as we strongly believe that students learn from each other and teachers can even learn from their students.
Progress is measured against shared learning outcomes and objectives. Even after the lesson, students can continue their learning experience by communicating with other students from their own school and other schools via our monitored learning forum.
This is the gateway to our virtual learning platform.
Each student is given a log in username and password to assess the portal. These log in details must remain safe, remembered but never shared. If you require access to the portal then we will provide you with log in details also.
Students have access to an EVOLVE inbox where personalised links to their lessons are sent. Accessing the lesion is as easy as logging in to the portal and clicking the appropriate link in their inbox. This is an inbox only feature and students cannot send messages/emails from it.
Learning resources will also be uploaded to the Resources section of the portal to compliment work from the lessons. These can include links to suitable websites, PDF or word documents, video or audio clips that are uploaded to further students understanding of particular topics. This is in addition to the Activities section where tasks are uploaded for students to complete.
Finally, we believe that collaborative working and learning is important and as such students have access to a monitored forum where they can interact with their peers from their school or college or students from other client schools or colleges.
Before students are granted access to the features of the Student Portal they must agree to the User Agreement for them. You will be informed of any breach of the agreement by one of your students.
