WISS comes together on its e-learning platform

The Western International School of Shanghai is an education center prioritizing student safety and learning. To ensure that student learning does not fall behind because of the extended break, WISS implemented an online learning plan that students and parents can access from anywhere in the world.

This e-learning plan is for all WISS students, from the youngest Early Years’ students to secondary students.

Students and staff are working remotely from 20 countries and regions around the world in different time zones, so WISS is using its regular ManageBac and Storypark platforms, as well as tools like Flipgrid, Seesaw and Skype, to create online learning communities and maintain communication between students, parents and teachers.

The success of the online plan has been possible because of the staff’s commitment to student learning. Lessons are planned for each grade according to a student’s developmental needs.

In addition to the educational benefits, the WISS e-learning program is helping to keep community bonds strong and healthy in this challenging time.

Students, teachers and parents are in touch daily and support one another as much as possible.

With many families forced to stay at home for weeks, the WISS e-learning plan allows students to get back into a routine and feel more at ease in spite of the situation. And it’s not just teachers who are available for students and families, all WISS staff are working remotely. Anyone needing counseling support, information from the school’s librarian or assistance from any office, contact can be made via e-mail.

Although the current situation has been difficult, it has highlighted how the WISS community demonstrates the IB learner profile traits every day, both on and off campus.

Our community has shown that when a crisis strikes, WISS comes together. We are one. We are WISS.
