Distance Learning

About CyberEd@MDIS

CyberEd@MDIS is our standards-aligned, distance learning program developed and designed by MDIS instructional leadership and teachers.
Our head start on planning this program back in February allowed us to launch our online learning program on March 18th, 2020, thus maintaining continuity of education for our students as our physical campus closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Instruction and assignments are:

  • A hybrid of synchronous learning (live sessions) and asynchronous learning activities using a wide variety of technologies
  • Aligned with International Baccalaureate curriculum standards and pedagogical methods
  • Designed to help students develop in the areas of research skills, thinking skills, and communication skills, social skills, and self-management skills – Approaches to Learning that are part of the IB curriculum framework

Parent Engagement

Regular parent communication is critical to the success of our distance learning program.

We host weekly video calls with parents to answer questions and ensure aligned expectations. Weekly e-newsletters are sent to parents with updates regarding online learning and the Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) meets monthly via video conference. Parent volunteers are welcome to serve as Guest Readers for PYP and Guest Speakers for MYP/DP.

Distance Learning Curriculum Framework

How have we transitioned our students to distance learning? By taking our IB Curriculum and shifting
it to the needs of each program level.
