Greenhill School Joins Global Online Academy

Greenhill School has been accepted into the Global Online Academy (GOA) and will offer students the opportunity to take online courses during the 2012-13 school year.
 
The GOA is a nonprofit, global partnership of independent schools bringing intellectually challenging programs and excellent teaching online. As it states in the school’s mission, Greenhill fosters a passion for learning in students. Being a part of the GOA provides students with exposure to global views and ideas, ultimately encouraging them to embrace not just their local community, but the entire world.
 
Each year, the GOA offers a range of courses taught by faculty at member schools. The courses involve 5-7 hours per week of coursework in the form of assignments and online interactions with the teacher and other students. The students gather asynchronously because they are located in different time zones, but the software platform for the classes allows for easy sharing of ideas and materials. Greenhill students enrolling in GOA classes will receive academic credit and the grades will appear on the student’s transcript.
 
“Online collaboration benefits our entire school,” said Chris Bigenho, Greenhill Director of Instructional Technology the site administrator for the program. “Students bring ideas from other cultures to their physical classrooms, enriching classroom discussions. Teachers learn new instructional techniques and find inspiration as they talk with other online faculty, making them more effective in the classroom.”
 
Greenhill is thrilled to be able to offer students have the opportunity to engage with and learn from their peers around the world. CLICK HERE to learn more about the Global Online Academy.
