Communication is key at Nevada Connections Academy. The reality of a school whose boundaries are an entire state is that community means something different to every one of our students, parents, and teachers. The only way to ensure a welcoming community is to remain in a constant and proactive state of healthy communication between all stakeholders.
Nine out of 10 people will say flexibility is the biggest difference between traditional and online schools, but for me, it’s something rarer. In a world where nearly everything has been explored and discovered, e-learning is still something of “the wild frontier.” The recent pandemic has thrown most of the nation’s traditional educational institutions into a state of chaos, trying to evolve their educational practices on the fly (like “building the plane while it’s in flight”)—playing catch-up. The exciting difference between traditional and online platforms is that schools like Nevada Connections Academy are both better seasoned and equipped to adapt to these shifting social, cultural, and political changes, while continuing to press forward into the as-yet-unexplored portions of this educational e-learning frontier.
As citizens on the educational frontier, Nevada Connections Academy students are already better prepared to function in a society that is only becoming more dependent on virtual platforms. Today’s students graduating from an e-learning platform will be the first ones to complete postsecondary and postgraduate degrees entirely online. While that will present its own set of unique challenges for these students, their extensive experience in the virtual realm will also be an immense asset for companies and/or agencies struggling to innovate and evolve within their own markets."
