JAKARTA, Indonesia, April 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- As pupils across Indonesia continue to face cancelled lessons, students of ACG School Jakarta have been experiencing life in virtual classrooms for the past several weeks, with guided online learning. As a member of Inspired Education Group, ACG School Jakarta has been able to draw upon the knowledge and experience this global network has already accumulated since international closures began. At present, Inspired is successfully providing a 'virtual school life' to more than 25,000 students in 11 countries around the world, with over 100,000 hours of e-learning already completed.

"At Inspired, we set new standards in education not just academically, but also in performing arts and sports. But more than that, our philosophy is to prepare children for life. We have to lead the way and practice what we teach, by preparing and dealing with whatever life presents us. We're very proud of our great teachers and our ability to draw on the e-learning and technology capability of the group -- and of course the amazing support of our parents and students", said Nadim M Nsouli, Inspired Founder, Chairman & CEO.

Lessons at ACG School Jakarta are currently being delivered interactively via a variety of online programmes, some of which are already a part of Inspired's innovative approach to learning. This means the transition to a virtual school has been both simple and seamless. Students are following a regular school timetable, attending lessons from Monday to Friday, while teachers deliver a combination of live streamed lessons, video sessions and online assignments.

In a virtual environment, the importance and ease of communication is paramount. ACG School Jakarta has a unique communication plan in place for family communities, staff and students. Parents have been provided with a clear understanding of expectations and direct lines of communication with teachers. Regular contact between students, teachers and classmates ensures high engagement and focus throughout the new style of school day.

Working hard behind the scenes are the support staff, including IT specialists who are continually monitoring and reviewing the systems to ensure adequate functionality and stability of the programmes, both technically and academically.

"Our top priority is to ensure the quality and continuity of our students' education," explained Clarence van der Wel, CEO ACG Schools.

"Our ability to collaborate with the Inspired global educational network has given us an excellent platform on which to build our own virtual school environment. By sharing their combined knowledge and experience we are able to ensure learning for our students will continue uninterrupted.

"The advantages of having access to this type of international expertise have never been more important for our teachers, students and their parents."
