CyberSchool offers the traditional school curriculum using technology as a 21st century tool to enhance and extend student learning.
Flexibility and choice, collaborative learning, inquiry, and knowledge building are elements of this program. Students will interact with other students and their teacher, utilize the resources of the internet, and discuss issues online while still being able to retain the personal contact that traditional face-to-face learning allows.
CyberSchool allows Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows School District students in grades 6 and 7 to work at school three days a week, and from home (online) the other two days while still interacting with the class. Benefits of this program include the application of technology, collaboration in both online and face-to-face environments, and the development of independent working skills.
CyberSchool students are also part of the school district 1-to-1 program, in which each student is assigned an iPad for the school year. This option is open to all SD42 students who will be going into grades 6 and 7 in September 2018.
