Cyberschool

Cyberschool provides students with the opportunity to explore the traditional school curriculum while using the latest technologies.

Flexibility and choice, collaborative learning, inquiry, and knowledge building are elements of this program. Students will interact with their peers and 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 6-7 to work at school three days a week, and from home (online) the other two days while still interacting with the class. The benefits of this program include the application of technology, collaboration in both online and face-to-face environments, flexibility in scheduling, 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 2021.

Why CyberSchool?

Students who are well-motivated, independent learners can benefit from having choices in how they learn.

Learning can be enriched by the resources and environment that online learning allows, and working individually at home allows students to work at their own speed with fewer distractions but still have the ability to get individual help from their teacher or collaborate online with their classmates.
