Knowledge retention pyramid
In UniVirtual.Academy we leverage the power of storytelling, game-based learning, and immersive technologies to boost engagement, unlock creativity, and increase retention.
We use participatory (active) educational methodologies that demonstrate higher material retention rates than traditional lecturing, reading, or video. Our instructional strategies include media presentations, simulation, jigsaws, discovery learning, quizzes, puzzles, group research, case studies, debate, peer-to-peer teaching, cross-assessment, storyboarding, role play, and project-based constructivism.
Our methodology is deeply rooted in constructivism: Lev Vygotsky and Jean Piaget. We follow their belief that social interactions play a critical role in children's learning. Through such social interactions, children go through a continuous process of learning.
We expand students’ understanding of emerging technologies and their applications through integrated interdisciplinary classes.
We teach a variety of subjects including STEM, Entrepreneurship, economics, and cultural studies. In all of our courses, we emphasize leadership and empathy with the 4 Cs: communication, critical thinking, collaboration, and creativity. These are the essential 21st-century skills that our students will need to be successful throughout their lives, no matter what their professional calling will be.
