ÜTOPYA INTERACTIVE DISTANCE EDUCATION (UIDE)

Interactive Distance Education has thoughtfully been prepared by our teachers to adapted High Quality Education into our online lessons as well, which includes the following:

Turkish Curriculum, Foreign Language Curriculum and Bi-lingual Additional Program to be applied into Distance Education

Ütopya Interactive Distance Education (UIDE) is not an ordinary distance education.

It is interactive, as class friends and teachers are together.

It is alive, and all learning material is specially prepared by the teachers, not ready made learning material.

It isn't a system in which teachers only put videos on for the children to watch and learn. It is a system designed individually and thoughtfully for every class and the need of its children, so they may feel some sort of normality and reality in their online lessons. Not losing that true sense of school life, learning and most importantly not losing hope.

The goals of UIDE:

Our first goal is to keep the feeling of being a part of a group, allowing the children to remain connected, as well as the normal classroom routine.

Children need to feel and understand that life happens in a different ways, but does continue the same and that change is a part of life too. They will still have a life and school routine. We believe that a child's routine is very important to them, in oder for them to continue their lives as normal as possible. To feel emotionally safe and supported, not discouraged and anxious.

Our second goal is to continue on working with each child on their development, deep sense of learning, joy, curiosity, creativity and motivation, all while focusing on staying connected.

Here's how:

Ütopya Teachers have a great bond with the children. Parents also play a key roll in keeping their routine at home as it is in school, such as getting up at the same time, having breakfast together and sit with their child/children by computer for the first few days to support them until they are completely independent users.

Further more:

The weekly programs are adapted into interactive distance learning. We start by preparing the children step by step to prepare them mentally and learn the technical usage.

Activities are arranged to incorporate physical and active movements.

The programs is arranged as a whole groups, small group and one to one.

Very intensive communication with parents using online link book.
