Our teaching staff use a wide range of tools to aid in their teaching, such as whiteboards, video recordings, presentations and screen sharing. These are but a few of the tools available to our teachers to help our students achieve the best grades they possibly can.
At iBOS, we have pioneered a new way of teaching through the medium of interactive online school learning.
The idea of iBOS was put together by a group of senior education leaders and consultants with many years of experience. We are the first school to pioneer in full, vibrant and interactive live lessons that focus on the high standard of the British education system and curriculum from a centralised school building in the UK. Our school is a normal school like any other, with teachers having their own classrooms and access to a fully interactive white board, where our students are taught in lessons that are scheduled as a normal school timetable, despite being in different locations worldwide. We offer a broad range of subjects and a wealth of learning experiences in our live lessons.
Online education represents an immensely exciting pathway to the future of learning, as young students enjoy working online and using the latest technology to enhance their learning. Research shows that almost every school worldwide is obliged to use IT and technology as part of their schemes of work, and during the next few decades we will have many students attending online schools worldwide.
During our first phase at iBOS, we will cater for secondary school students at KS4 (GCSE and iGCSE) level, as well as sixth form students at KS5 (AS/A-Level), and we are lucky to have the most professional and well-qualified group of teachers, leaders and support staff with proven-track records of achievement to provide high quality education to deliver the British National Curriculum to our students.
Teachers attend our school in London, and have a normal classroom setup, whilst the students have their lessons in the comfort and safety of their home. The lessons will be delivered via a bespoke and cutting-edge online learning platform, where teachers can talk to the students in the capacity as a group or individually.
One of our key parameters is to deliver lessons in small groups; students can collaborate with other students, and they have the opportunity to contribute to the lesson live through their online-lesson dashboard. However, students cannot talk to each other without the teacher’s permission or instruction in lessons.
Whilst students are working on their tasks during the lesson, our teachers have access to the students’ worked-solutions to their questions/tasks live, and can assist them as the lesson progresses. We have an excellent team of analytic support staff in the backroom monitoring students’ emotional behaviour, progress, concentration level and attitude towards learning. Weekly analytical reports are produced, and can be accessed via the parent and student portals. If students feel the need to speak with their teachers confidentially in lessons, it can be facilitated by the teacher.
Our students come from many countries in and around Europe, and from the Middle East, given plenty of collaborative opportunities to work with each other through their online forums and face-to-face during our brush-off weeks.
The majority of our students are typical of those studying in conventional schools; however, we also do cater for those students who struggle to attend school due to different reasons, whom have not received the essential education and foundations in their learning. We know how to deliver success, making sure all our students achieve the best results they can and to their true potential. We have a dedicated SEND coordinator working with our students who have special educational needs.
Without the distractions of a traditional classroom, students can focus better on the lessons being shared by our teachers. With constant monitoring, our staff are able to offer support to individual students quickly, wherever it is needed, before a student begins to struggle.
Each of our courses follow and adhere to the national British school curriculum, and weekly reports are available on our school’s online dashboard. Each teacher has an analyst available to them, and students’ progress, attainment, attitude to learning and behaviour are closely monitored and documented for each lesson to improve our quality of teaching and student learning.
Our teaching staff use a wide range of tools to aid in their hosted lessons, such as interactive whiteboards, recordings and presentations, media uploading tools and screen sharing. These are but a few of the tools available to our teachers.
With the benefits of modern technology, our teachers deliver engaging interactive lessons, where students enjoy the learning experience from the comfort and safety of their own homes.
Students have the option to replay lessons which have been digitally recorded, giving them the chance to adequately prepare for homework assignments and revision for exams in their areas of study.
Video recordings of lessons can help students to understand exactly what they need to do in the event of absence; if a student has been ill and missed a lesson, it is a great resource to help them catch-up. Our recordings are an invaluable resource for our students, to help them succeed and achieve the best results in their work.
With access to our interactive school hub, parents can keep up-to-date with their child’s progress and assignments.
Extra-curricular activities such as societies, clubs and events are all accessible via the student hub for students, parents and teachers to collaborate together.
