While the traditional classroom is still alive and vibrant at Loomis Chaffee, we have responded to the growing presence and potential of online learning by beginning to develop our own online content. The Kravis Center recently completed work with eleven faculty members who received grants from the school to develop online learning modules for our students. The faculty designed projects include modules in Math, Spanish, Leadership Training and even a project between two US History teachers and two librarians focused on the writing of the history research paper.
While the relationship between student, teacher and content may be undergoing a major sea change as we mark the 100th year of Loomis Chaffee, you can rest assured that the faculty and staff remain committed to “the formation of skilled and discerning minds in preparation for higher education and lifelong learning” by continuing to be lifelong learners ourselves. Like any excellent craftsmen, we are continuously trying to hone our skills, add new tools to our toolboxes and creatively take our craft to the next level.
