At ECA we embrace the hybrid learning. Online learning environments offer different, but complementary functions to classroom learning and free up time for face-to-face interactions. Some of the platforms we employ to blend with traditional classroom teaching are: Schoology, FrontRow, Raz Kids, Hapara, etc. Teacher are expected to have an online classroom presence through Schoology.

ECA is guided by the ISTE Standards for Students, teachers and Coaches through a blended learning model, using SAMR as an implementation Framework.

  • The ISTE Standards provide guidance for technology use that promotes enhanced and transformative learning, with documentation specialized to students, teachers, coaches, and administrators.
  • The SAMR model provides a framework to help educators infuse technology into teaching and learning.
  • To ensure access to technology tools, the IT Department ensures availability and maintenance of good devices and internet access while the Technology Integration Facilitators work to promote technology integration best practices.
