The school purposes to introduce a technologically rich educational experience and will have a 1-1 student to computer ratio. The school day of the student will be largely self-paced, meaning that if it takes one student 45 minutes to complete an assignment and another 90 minutes it doesn't matter… the goal is to complete the task and learn the material, not to simply ‘get it done.’
Students will take some courses virtually from computers in the school. Virtual classrooms are becoming more and more popular and represent an entirely new philosophy of education. The University of Phoenix for example is a completely virtual university in which students can earn Bachelor and Master degrees without ever leaving their home. Traditional universities are also offering online courses to supplement their traditional ones… Salve Regina University’s doctoral program offers about half of its program online and even some of the best schools in the country are offering courses online, Harvard, Princeton, and Columbia all have begun integrating virtual learning into their culture.
