Frequently Asked Questions
Who teaches Connections Learning online learning solutions?
When you choose one of our teacher-led solutions, your students will be
taught by a Connections Learning certified teacher specially trained to
expertly deliver your program and bring out the best in your students. Our teachers stay in close touch with your Classroom Mentor and our Program Manager to ensure your students’ success.
Are your teachers certified in our state?
All Connections Learning teachers are licensed, certified, and trained as
online teachers. Many hold multi-state certification. Our courses are
taught by teachers in compliance with each state’s law.
How much interaction do the students have with the teachers?
Each course has an assigned teacher that will be with the student throughout
the length of the course. Teachers are available by phone, email, and
in many cases real-time LiveLesson® sessions. In addition, our Student Support Line puts live teachers at students’ and administrators’
fingertips to answer specific questions in core curriculum areas.
Can we use our own teachers to teach your online courses? Can you train them?
Yes, although we do recommend using Connections Learning teachers who have
been extensively trained in effective online teaching techniques, the
Connections Learning curriculum, and our Personalized Performance
Learning®approach. If using your own teachers is a priority for you, we
will train them through our professional development program for a
reasonable fee. Contact us for more information.
Is the K to the 8th Power (Kto8) curriculum also delivered by Connections Learning teachers?
The Kto8 curriculum is actually designed for delivery by YOUR classroom
teachers or computer lab instructors. For schools where classroom
teachers are expected to integrate technology with core curriculum, Kto8
enables those teachers to deliver quality instruction with minimal
preparation time by providing: lesson plans, rubrics, activity
instructions, and sample completed activities. For schools with computer
teachers, the Kto8 lessons provide the means to coordinate computer lab
instruction with content students are covering in their core subjects.
