Use of technology in the classroom

Technology serves as the primary tool to provide and generate information in teaching and learning. More so, students are taught the technical skills of navigating both hardware and software and the cognitive skills of making meaning from any output that is computer generated or aided.

Is the school ready to use virtual classrooms when needed? (e.g. teaching lessons online if the school is closed, e.g. during COVID-19 closures)

As early as 2016, we launched Google classroom as one of our online learning platforms and was used primarily during class suspensions. Learning materials and tasks were made available to students following the same schedule of their face-to-face classes. When the COVID-19 pandemic happened and school campuses are among the establishments that remain closed, we expedited our online distance learning program. We aptly named it, R-LIFE or Remote Learning of Integral Formation in Everest.

R-LIFE combines simultaneous online classroom instruction and self-paced learning activities to deliver Integral Formation based on the Regnum Christi Curriculum around the world. The program uses Google Suite, particularly Google Classroom, to manage R-LIFE learning materials, tasks, assignments, and assessments. Mentoring sessions, student check-ins, guidance modules, advisory sessions, and other spiritual activities are also available online.

Do teachers assign homework to their students?

Teaching approach of the school

We take the best practices from both ends of the spectrum. We go beyond memorization and teach our students to understand, to think, to ask critical questions, to assimilate and apply their knowledge. Our teachers give our students personal attention and make use of many student- centered, hands-on, experiential and collaborative teaching approaches. Our teachers are trained to assess student learning through multiple assessment tools. These are some of the characteristics that are also used by schools denominated as progressive.

To achieve academic excellence and development of the whole person our students are prepared for higher learning by developing a variety of skills that may not be present in all progressive schools like: test-taking skills, independent learning, homework, study habits, time and project management, etc. We require order in the classrooms with set routines and structures. Our teaching style actively promotes the growth in character and virtue so that the students internalize it and express it through their choices and actions. As commonly found in other traditional schools, the school has vibrant programs and practices to promote the joyful living of respect, self- mastery, obedience, responsibility and accountability. The structured environment in our classrooms allows for progressive learning strategies to flourish.
