At CADMUS® NAC, students benefit from the meaningful use of modern, up-to-date technology that was designed with the student in mind. These tools, developed by SABIS®, enrich students’ day-to-day learning experience and enhance their academic performance.
In the classroom, students learn dynamic content delivered through state-of-the-art technology. Interactive whiteboards are used to put content into context and bring it to life. Instruction is enhanced with digital features such as glossaries, videos, and audio recordings that elaborate on the content and provide for differentiation among our diverse learners. Students in Grade 3 onward use SABIS® E-books to bring the content to life in a format that is light and accessible anywhere.
Beyond the classroom, CADMUS® NAC students continue to benefit from technologies developed by SABIS®. By simply logging on to the school’s digital platform at home or on the go, they can access a wealth of online learning tools such as on-demand tutorial videos – a set of teaching videos explaining a variety of academic concepts – which complement and reinforce what they have learned in class.
This platform will also be available for CADMUS® NAC parents to use to keep track of their child’s academic performance, behavior, daily school contributions, and attendance. Accessible via mobile device, tablet, or computer, the platform also provides regular updates on school events and activities. Parents can also download the Parent App to their mobile phone or tablet to access the digital platform and receive alerts regarding school notices.
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent school closures, and regardless of their physical location, CADMUS® students around the network have continued their education without missing a beat. Thanks to the highly developed SABIS® E-learning solutions, structured and systematic approach, and incomparable learning habits, CADMUS® students have adapted rapidly to a changing world, and the learning has never stopped. This will also be true for our students.
If the shift to online learning is needed, every morning, our students (or kindergarteners’ parents) will be able to log in to the school’s digital platform from their tablets or computers at home to check their daily and weekly plans, detailed schedules, and download any assigned material.
In their daily routine, they will attend a mix of classes, some that have been pre-recorded by their teachers and uploaded onto the school’s digital platform, and others that are given in a “virtual classroom” environment in real time. Virtual, real-time classes are also recorded and uploaded onto the school’s digital platform, giving students the opportunity to watch them again if they need to.
To ensure that the learning is in fact taking place, students will have assigned homework and continue to take regular assessments to test their understanding. While students are working, teachers and administrators will receive data on their progress and performance, and are able to follow up with their students accordingly.
