Teacher- Directed learning at the elementary level is offered using online learning and teaching resources and tools in grades 1- 6. Instruction follows the Alberta Program of Studies. This choice is best for students who wish to learn from home in a program where a certificated teacher:
- develops the instructional path,
- delivers the learning opportunities,
- coaches and assesses the student.
LearnNet is primarily a teacher directed program that uses technology to provide students the opportunity to learn with peers and to be part of an online learning community. Please review the following highlights of LearnNet:
