No matter where life takes them, today’s students always have their biggest supporters close at hand. In the span of an instant, they can text the winning play, download a trail map, watch the recital video, or post their study notes. They are mobile. They are collaborative. And they want to know more. Join the others who have found success with Colorado’s alternative high schools and Colorado Cyber. Colorado Cyber leverages students’ lives outside the classroom to promote their achievement within it. Communication and collaboration both in-person and online are at the core of the student experience, regardless of the grade level.
Powered by a school-administered Web 2.0 platform, Colorado Cyber provides students, parents and teachers with various communication tools to ensure that learning is boundless and beyond traditional homeschooling in Colorado. Whether they prefer discussion forums, chat, wikis, blogs or email, school users can share and modify text, video and audio content on demand whenever and from wherever suits them. This flexibility makes submitting assignments, working on group projects, forming communities around shared interests, and accessing individualized support services easy, secure and convenient.
In addition to Web-based interaction, Colorado Cyber facilitates opportunities for the learning community to connect in person. Teachers plan local field trips and outings designed to enrich the academic experience and to connect students to their communities. Parent support is available via planned virtual sessions, as well as locally held parent meetings. Student clubs are also encouraged to plan events that allow members to interact offline.
