In addition to the professional training that Savremena International School provides during our four-year programme aiming to prepare students for university, our students are also given an opportunity to develop various skills that would enable them to lead a successful life in the 21st century. The continuous implementation of trends within education means that we integrate knowledge and skills into a holistic approach to teaching and that we support the intellectual development of our students.
The skill-oriented courses offered at our school are not mandatory. However, they were designed to serve as add-ons to subjects within the curriculum. Their purpose is to help students unify their knowledge, achieve the best results and build a successful career. This set of courses is a valuable gift, which students can access on our e-learning platform throughout their schooling.
The e-Learning platform – a treasury of knowledge and skills
The purpose of our modern take on education is not just to raise awareness on the necessity of changing the current state of education but also to highlight the benefits of using technology in the classroom. Interactive learning is the best kind of learning! Regardless of whether the learning takes place in a classroom or online, an interactive approach to teaching is the only guarantee that students will stay focused and achieve the best results. The interactive quality of e-learning helps develop a student’s versatility, which is exactly what the coming generations need. The only thing still left to do is to tailor the educational system to these trends and to enjoy the benefits they bring. We have already done all of that for our students.
Our e-learning platform enables students and their parents to access interactive study materials, communicate with teachers and take tests at any time, regardless of their location. Having that option helps students gain a better understanding of what they did in class. During the school year, students are free to take numerous courses and receive full-assistance from their teachers. Depending on their interests, students are free to take any course they want, free-of-charge.
Would you like to decide when you want to study instead of having the course schedule determine that for you? The courses you select will be available on your e-learning platform, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
