A MODEL FOR POST-COVID ERA
To reach the goal of scalable personalized learning, this School Model maximizes the positive aspects of three types of schools: private one-to-one academies, virtual schools, and franchise micro-schools. This unique offering is more effective academically for Students and more financially attractive for both Teachers and Parents than anything else in the market today.
SCHOOL MODEL PRINCIPLES
The concept of learning through an Individualized Conversation is enshrined as the single most important activity to which the whole enterprise is dedicated. This Individualized Conversation is one based on empathy and mentorship, constructed, ideally, as questions and answers, one leading to the other, all monitored, analyzed and stored for further review.
Within this School Model, learning takes place in a Virtual Reality (VR) environment, and it is customized, augmented and adapted in real time. Learning material is extended outside the VR environment into school-organized out-of-class activities. For these activities, on-site AR is used with the help of Students’ own phones.
AGENCY AND CHOICE
We drive to expand the array of choices that customize the learning experience as much as possible, and allow all our stakeholders as much empowerment as possible, including the ability of Students to choose their Teachers, and Teachers to choose their Students.
Like other online schools, there is no officially designated physical school building. However, the School will operate under a model of setting up “micro-school”-like premises based on detected and expressed demand in the locations where Students are already using the services. Without the overhead of a fixed, official school building, and with the help of digital technologies, significant costs can be reduced.
TUITION AND AFFORDABILITY
The School offers various levels of tuition, depending on the degree of attention each Student requires. Tuition burden can be reduced through Parents formally taking one of the available, predetermined roles in running the School in their region.
