First Tablet Only Online School
Calvary Online School has become the first online school to be completely operable from tablet technology. While other schools are limited to merely supplementing their teaching and curriculum with this technology, Calvary Online School is offering students and staff the ability to conduct their entire educational experience from nothing more than a tablet*. The standards being set by Calvary Online School will become the norm in education within the next five years.
Calvary Online School’s technological breakthrough supports our model of academic rigor and easy accessibility to California-credentialed teachers. At Calvary Online School, we have always placed students at the center of learning in a structured, academic environment, providing multiple opportunities for interaction with both peers and teachers. Now, using nothing more than a tablet, our students can access engaging, interactive, multimedia curriculum twenty-four hours a day. And when students need more support beyond simple email communication, they can use their tablets to join tutoring sessions, workshops, or one-on-one appointments with their teachers. From their tablets, students can also present their projects and papers, discussing them face-to-face in real time with a credentialed teacher in a live, virtual meeting.
*Students can still use a laptop or desktop, if preferred. Full version of Windows 8 tablets only; iPad, Droid not yet compatible.
What’s So Great About Tablets?
Compared to hardwired desktops and bulky laptops, tablets are a light, portable means for students to enjoy flexible work environments. Whether traveling or simply switching study locations, students can take their schooling with them—to the local library, the coffee shop, or even the beach!
This technological development is just one of the many new innovative changes occurring at Calvary Online School. To learn more about all the exciting developments taking place, please contact us today or sign up for a live virtual open house to have your questions answered by the school’s director.
Free Windows Tablet Opportunity:
Calvary Online School will be taking applications from students with a GPA of 3.0 or above who would like the opportunity to use and ultimately own a Windows tablet in the 2013–14 school year.
