The school wishes to showcase its Online Distance Learning and EdTech journeyto help the other schools in the Philippines cope with the new normal.
Combining the best of Jesuit education tradition with innovation, Xavier School is a pioneer in the use of technology among schools in the Philippines. The school is an innovative and compelling learning environment that engages students and provides tangible evidence of academic accomplishment–a place that continues to expand the application and integration of technology tools in learning and teaching through various programs initiated by the Grade School and High School units, such as inclusion of coding and robotics in the STEAM curriculum, creation of Makerspace opportunities, and support for more relevant professional learning for teachers, locally and internationally.
This school year, the pandemic has prompted the school to shift to online distance learning.
The new program aptly called Xavier School E-Learning or XSEL will enable the students to be “persons fully alive, endowed with a passion for justice and the skills for development” through meaningful learning experiences facilitated outside the confines of the physical classroom. XSEL is adapted for diverse contexts, designed for academic excellence, and aimed at holistic formation of the Lifelong Learner.
