Dwight School Dubai’s commitment is to provide an alternative means of education in the form of Distance Learning. We are proud that we are able to do so under exceptional circumstances that have required a full school closure. Our dedicated teachers have been able to gain expertise and guidance from our Dwight Global teaching staff who have been delivering outstanding Distance Learning for the past 7 years.
Through our Distance Learning experience, our Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP) and Senior students will be empowered to make choices about how they reach clearly defined learning goals; be engaged in [online] collaboration to solve authentic problems; feel safe to take intellectual risks while persevering through challenges; be supported with modeling, differentiation, specific feedback, and opportunities for reflection and revision; and, continue to be passionate, intrinsically motivated, and inspired to action.
Dwight School Dubai will continue to offer an effective education through Distance Learning within Synchronous and Asynchronous Learning Environments.
Synchronous Learning is online live learning, in real time. Asynchronous Learning is learning that does not require participants, teachers, and students to be online at the same time.
