Remote Learning at Corbett Prep
We want to create a remote learning environment where teachers can continue to engage students and keep their minds active in meaningful ways.
Using Zoom and Canvas, we can facilitate a version of blended learning, where students learn online via platforms and tools as well as in face-to-face interactions with our teachers via Zoom.
Many of our instructional tools are familiar to our students, and by striking a balance between active learning and novelty, and between online and paper-based learning, we have an opportunity to flex our educational muscles and provide students with the ability to continue their classes in a new manner.
Canvas is our Learning Management System (LMS) and serves as home base for students academically. Older Corbett Prep students are versed in accessing assignments from their teachers, turning in work and receiving feedback from their teachers. Under our Remote Learning Plan, we will use Canvas across all grade levels from PreK3-8th grade. The plan includes information for parents on how to log in, how to access your child's work and where to go for help.

Zoom is a web-based video conferencing tool with a local, desktop client and a mobile app that allows users to meet online, with or without video. Zoom users can choose to record sessions, collaborate on projects, and share or annotate on one another’s screens, all with one easy-to-use platform.
Classes and Specials will use Zoom during the school day for real-time conversations, instruction and activities.
Having trouble using Zoom or switching between Zoom and other platforms? Check out our remote learning video tutorials.
A shift to remote learning will require our students and families to make adjustments. Administrators, office staff, division leaders and teachers are all available to support and guide students and parents.
