Practical Strategies for Effective Learning

Do you want to become a more effective online learner? As schools responded to the pandemic by shifting learning online, you had to navigate new learning environments, routines, support, ways to collaborate, and mechanisms to demonstrate your learning. Whether your school is opening virtually, planning a hybrid online -on campus solution, or you are returning to school - this opportunity to skill-up and set yourself up for success will serve you no matter where you do your learning this year.

For almost a decade, Global Online Academy has been empowering students to build the skills they need to thrive and engage with the topics they care about the most. Learning to learn online is a skill that should be developed intentionally, rather than left to chance, through a process of behaviors and habits that help students focus on content and experiences, not the tools used to deliver them. Through self-observation, conversation, and personal reflection, students in this course will evaluate their previous approach to online learning and set goals for the year ahead. Each day of this four day course will cover a key skill related to learning environment, navigation and planning, getting help, and being an active learner. Students will join in a global conversation where they will learn about, share and apply each skill to their own setting. By the end of the course, students will have created a personal toolkit of resources, reminders, and their own online learning commitments to be used independently or shared with a teacher.

Affiliated teachers will be provided with guidelines on how to best prepare their students and themselves for the experience.

Who is this course for?

This course is appropriate for students in grades 9-12. The personalized nature of this course makes it perfect for any learner context including a class, a grade level, a study skills or advisory program. While the design of this course encourages teachers to bring a group of students and integrate course topics into their learning environment, individual students are also welcomed to enroll.

There is a middle school version of this course which will cover the same key skills in a much leaner online format which asks affiliated teachers to be more actively engaged in the delivery of the learning experience.
