Moodlic for Parents
Transcript of Moodlic for Parents
So, what is this Moodlic?
And - where do parents fit in?
There are currently over 40 000 active Moodle sites being used by schools, universities, and institutions in 210 countries
Moodlic is ISB’s branding of Moodle, the increasingly popular online Learning Management System (LMS). Also known as Virtual Learning Environments (VLE’s), these platforms allow schools to combine learning objectives with the convenience, accessibility, and engagement we associate with the Internet.
The advantages of using LMS’s are wide and varied. Some of these advantages include: stimulating collaborative learning, increasing meaningful participation, augmenting learning with relevant and focused media, enabling students to co-construct knowledge, building a sense of community between the student, family, and school.
Although LMS’s can never replace the benefits of physical schools, they do augment learning by extending the learning space. In the event of a school closure, learning would shift to the Moodlic environment. After extensive teacher training we are confident Moodlic would be used to effectively minimize disruptions to student learning.
In the same way teachers and the school are reponsible
for creating effective learning environments, parents and
guardians would also be obliged to maintain expectations
and habits of learning at home.
