EDLounge launched EDVirtual (Our Virtual Classroom) in 2016 so that students and schools involved with EDLounge will have the internal capacity to benefit from this Virtual Classroom approach and support mechanism for reaching a range of students within and outside of school.EDVirtual has been created so that your establishments can target those hard to reach students, using your own staff, mentors and support staff (alongside EDLounge teaching staff) to educate learners in any situation.
Learners follow a unique pathway for them and achieve support when they require it.
This facility will enable us and yourself to further support students and the needs of those involved with these individuals in furthering their education. The difference between this and our normal support is that there is more supervision used for the students learning off-site.
The Virtual Classroom enables you to :
- view the students learning live via a secure server stream,
- chat face to face,
- view their learning progress,
- view actual live answers
- mentor students via a secure verbal chat or written chat
- set a structured pathway for any individual
This approch can dramatically improve your students’ attendance and achievement.
Our Virtual Classroom and online support system provides a great alternative provision for a range of your students which adheres to government safeguarding, well-being and supervision legislation. Within this provision you have a robust and comprehensive tool that not only your organisation to offers teaching and support, but also offers tutoring, assessment, pre-assessment, verification, and expertise in any subject for any age group for those doing core, academic or vocational courses. EDLounge can also offer teaching support for any organisation.
