This program is all about giving students access to classes that they otherwise might not be able to take if their school does not offer what they need. This might be offered to them in different ways.
- Synchronous-meaning face to face through cameras set up in the classrooms.
- Asynchronous-meaning online learning through Canvas.
- Virtual field trips
All of these are great ways of providing differentiated ways of teaching our students.
How does this teaching happen? First we have many high schools that have been set up with Distance Learning Labs. These labs have been provided through a grant from ORNL. Knox County already supports the learning management system called Canvas. Canvas would be used for the online provision.
We are in the process of building the program and building the Virtual field trip portion of QuEST! Stay tuned!
