Virtual School Meanderings

May 16, 2012

Greetings From K12/Aventa Learning

From yesterday’s inbox…  An interesting opportunity for those who wish to get a preview of these courses.

Hello

Thank you for your interest in online learning solutions.

K12/ Aventa offers the flexibility to use your district teachers, our teachers or any combination, and to have courses loaded onto your learning management system or you can use ours.   I have attached our extensive course listing for core/electives and credit recovery.

There are many reasons that districts like yours are using virtual learning:

* Individualized options for gifted and talented or struggling learners
* Schools not able to find qualified staff to teach a particular course (especially foreign languages)
* Schools wishing to provide a quality online learning experience
* Students who want to take courses not currently offered in their school or district
* Schools looking to add summer school alternatives

Students are experiencing great success with K12/Aventa curriculum!

Please let me know if you would like to preview some of our courses.  Let me know what day/time is convenient for you.  We would just need 30-45 minutes of your time.

Thank you.

Expanding Online Learning: A Case Study. Watch Our Web Seminar

From yesterday’s inbox…

Web Seminars from District Administration

The changing face of online learning
Tuesday, February 28, 2012 at 2pm, ETIncreasingly, school districts adopt online learning to meet one need and quickly find new opportunities to expand the initiative to help other students. That’s the changing nature of online learning, exemplified in the experience at Spotsylvania County Public Schools in Virginia. Join us for a case study examining how Spotsylvania began using Aventa Learning by K12 for credit recovery in an alternative school and soon expanded its use for a variety of purposes in all five of its high schools.

Topics to be covered include:

  • How teachers can customize online courses for individual students.
  • Using online courses in a blended model with classroom teachers.
  • How online courses used for credit recovery can reduce the need for summer school.
  • Moving online courses beyond credit recovery to help all students take classes that don’t fit in their schedule, or AP courses not offered by the school.
