The Edmodo Platform is a great tool for the e-learning, it has been very user-friendly and organized thoughtfully by our teachers. My 10 year old son can independently log on, access his daily studies by subject, receive instructional videos (with fun comments for the students!) by his teachers and print off worksheets. If he gets stuck, he has learned to post the questions to his teachers in the group or in a private message and they are very responsive! Being a new process of course there have been some challenges but overall it is working well-and provided an aspect that wasn’t expected- teaching my son independent study and organization!

From the Pinto Family,
After being stuck in a hotel trying to do e-learning, coming back home to Shanghai has been great. Having access to a printer and stationary, along with unlimited snacks has been helpful. We’ve tried to stick to the school routine as much as possible, with recess and ten minute breaks-even wearing school uniforms. We’ve had teething problems with downloading videos and documents but it’s getting better as we figure out the apps. We are really appreciative of the teachers and staff who have put tremendous effort into getting e-learning to run smoothly-and for their continual and timely support. Thank you!

Fourth grade has just completed our second week of e-learning. The first week was tough for everybody; teachers, parents, and students were all struggling to deal with technical issues, and problem solving together. But the second week has been fantastic, and I’m really proud of the way everybody has pulled together to make e-learning work so successfully. Students have really embraced the new electronic platform. They have learned to download class videos, then complete their assignments from home, and upload their completed work to their teachers.
All students are working hard and turning in high quality assignments, and we couldn’t be more pleased. But we’re making the best of it, and it’s working. Our SLAS community are a credit to themselves the way we have come together to deliver a quality learning platform for our children at this difficult time.
