At Dubai American Academy, we are committed to delivering a high-quality education and fulfilling our mission for our learners. We are relentless to establish effective means to do so under circumstances that may require a full campus closure. In such conditions, our commitment is to provide an alternative means of education in the form of a Remote Learning Plan. The RLP outlines the experience that students will have when school remains in session, but when students are unable to physically attend school because of campus closure. While an RLP cannot replicate onsite learning, our teachers can deliver powerful instruction that allows students to meet expected standards in an online environment.
The DAA RLP experience aligns with our DAA mission, guiding statements and curriculum expectations. Our students will be empowered to achieve clearly defined learning goals; have opportunities to collaborate online to solve authentic problems; take intellectual risks and persevere through challenges; be supported with modeling, differentiation, individual feedback, and opportunities for reflection and revision. The aim is for our learners to continue to be inspired, passionate, and intrinsically motivated to reach their learning goals.
The success of our RLP requires a true partnership. Firstly, our dedicated teachers will commit to careful planning, maintaining an online presence, and providing regular feedback. Our students will need to bring motivation, presence and engagement to each session and subsequent online work. Lastly, our families will need to support this alternative mode of instruction in the home environment. The result of such learning experiences will continue to support students’ academic progress and will be mindful to attend to students’ social and emotional well-being.
