Working Together To Make a Change
Accessibility Is No longer a Barrier
Matawa Education and Care Centre provides Matawa students with e-Learning courses through Distance Education. We recognize the challenges that youth are facing when completing their Ontario Secondary School Diploma. Accessibility is no longer a barrier for students as Distance Education allows them to complete accredited high school courses online and gain credits towards their diploma. Within the online classroom, students can access lessons and resources, participate in discussions, complete and submit assignments, receive feedback from the teacher, and seek academic support. Students can take academic, applied, or locally developed courses in grade 9 and 10; and can take university, college, open, and workplace level courses in grade 11 or 12. The large course selection will open up more doors for students seeking post-secondary education. Distance Education courses provides students with the convenience of completing work at their own pace, and from the comfort of their home communities. Students will also develop digital citizenship and practice transferable skills such as research, planning, and critical thinking. Students will be supported in the online classroom through video-conferencing, teacher and tutor support, tutorials, and orientation sessions.
