that all students around the globe have been forced to experience
online learning in some form or another, many have seen the benefits
that distance learning has to offer and some have found that it suits
their own learning style better than traditional methods. Advantages of
online learning include increased flexibility in terms of time,
learning at one‘s own pace, and increased options in courses. In
addition, Qibao Dwight students have reported how during their recent
online learning journey, their skills in
time-management, organization and communication have all
has been engaging with online options since we opened in 2014. In
order to meet our students’ diverse needs and interests, students have
taken IB Course through Pamoja each year. In addition, starting last
year, students have begun to enroll in Dwight Global AP courses.
A learning s more students get comfortable with new ways of learning, we
are looking to expand our online offerings to interested students.
Qibao Dwight Students have three main ways to engage in Online Learning Programs: Blended Learning Program, Gap Year Program, Dwight Global.
blended learning program is for students who have interests in academic
areas that fall outside the QDHS curriculum and students who want more
flexibility in their schedule. This program suits students with strong
academic backgrounds, good time management, and are well
organized. Students can take courses from Dwight Global or Pamoja
either in lieu of or in addition to QDHS curriculum.
addition to the increase in choices of classes, students will have
fewer scheduled classes per week but will need to arrange their own time
accordingly to ensure to get all their work done. Since online courses
follow a different schedule than QDHS, students will have fewer exams
during mid-term and finals week. This also means that when QDHS has
holidays such as National Day and Chinese New Year’s, students will need
to continue with their online classes.
Gap Year program benefits students who want to take the time and space
to develop interests outside the QDHS Curriculum. Students who complete
a gap year show significant growth in skills such as organization, time
management, motivation and reflection. In addition, this allows
students to be better prepared for entering the IB Diploma Programme or
CAIE A-Levels, helping them gain more from their overall high school
use the model of a blended, flipped synchronous seminar approach with a
college-style class schedule. The model is blended because it mixes
synchronous (real-time, online, video-based, virtual classroom) and
asynchronous (recorded lectures and seminars, and other pre-existing
materials available on demand) components. The model is flipped because
students are expected to watch the lectures before they come to class,
so that seminar time can be used for active discussion. Classes meet
for two hours per week of synchronous lessons.

with the IBO and CAEI to offer certain IB, A-level, and IGCSE courses
to students from schools around the world. A student’s typical week
schedule consists of two smaller assignments and one large assignment
with a live lesson approximately once every two weeks. Each week’s work
starts on a Wednesday and ends the following Tuesday.
course work and exams are completed through the Pamoja platform
following the Pamoja schedule. Classes start in September and finish
at the end of May. Holiday schedules may not match QDHS holidays
meaning students will have to complete Pamoja work during China National
Day holiday and Lunar New Year. Reports are issued 3 times per year
and include a grade and comment. Final IB, IGCSE, and A-Level exams
will take place at QDHS along with other students.
