Apex International Academy and Innova Academy are two new schools planning to open in August 2017, challenging themselves to reimagine education in the ‘Second Machine Age’ by designing engaging physical and virtual environments that support forward thinking pedagogies.

Through achieving a balanced ‘learning ecosystem’, we aspire to realize personalized learning experiences where ‘learners pursue their interests, create meaningful products and take on responsibility for their own learning’. In this environment, learners and teachers will be connected and engaged with each other and, global communities and resources. In doing so, they will ultimately develop entrepreneurial confidence and digital competencies.

An essential goal of our Collaborative Online Learning Environment (COLE) is to effectively support the social and educational needs of individual learners and to allow teachers to provide personal guidance, so that learners are properly challenged, supported, and mentored on their learning journeys.

“Ultimately, we aspire to harness the unique qualities and strengths of both human beings and technology to transform learning’ and engage the next generation of passionate, confident and caring individuals."

Our presentation explores how we are setting about to create the virtual environment to support our vision.
