The Benjamin Lower School’s Remote Learning Program is a combination of several online experiences presented through Seesaw. Seesaw is an asynchronous online platform, where the Lower School students are able to participate in whole-class meetings through Zoom, one on one instructional sessions with the teachers, video lessons, and online learning activities. Seesaw allows the Lower School teachers to continue with the curriculum and provide enriching content. Students are exposed to a set number of lessons and activities each day that are grade-level appropriate and mindful of screen time. Except for the prescheduled live morning meetings, families have the flexibility to complete the online lessons, videos, and activities at times that are convenient for them.
In addition to the experiences presented through Seesaw, families are provided with continually updated resource lists to expand and enrich the students’ learning.
