Kamehameha Schools has launched KS Digital, an online educational tool made possible through a partnership with Arizona State University, a national leader in online training platforms and technology. KS Digital gives haumāna of all ages access to Hawaiian culture-based education anywhere and anytime.
Without question, educators at Kamehameha Schools and around the world are approaching the start of a unique school year. As we prepare to welcome students back to school – via distance learning or in-person classroom instruction – we remain focused on keeping our ʻohana safe and healthy while continuing to deliver a world-class educational experience.
Our kumu across campuses are at the heart of our ability to deliver on our mission. Amidst the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, their role on the frontline has become increasingly vital to our community as the needs of our haumāna and families evolve. As the worldwide crisis continued, we recognized the need for a tool to support our teachers’ efforts and maximize the educational offerings to those we serve.
Today, we are proud to present KS Digital, an important tool that will facilitate learning, provide continuity on and off campus and keep our ʻohana connected and aligned. The intuitive, streamlined learning management system allows us to modernize our approach to education and ensure continuity so our schools can keep delivering world-class education for haumāna of any age, anywhere and anytime.
Those participating in full online distance learning will rely primarily on the advanced learning system for various needs, including attending classes, accessing coursework and interacting with other students and kumu. Students participating in our hybrid learning model will have access to both in-person classes and the robust suite of online offerings hosted through KS Digital.
The platform is made possible by our partnership with Arizona State University, a national leader in online training platforms and technology that empower teachers and enable students to engage in interactive, exploratory learning.
KS Digital allows us to support educators by sharing Hawaiian culture-based educational resources for their virtual classrooms. Teachers will find reliable HCBE content and teaching materials, whether they are looking for curated work or work created by fellow educators.
Whether in the classroom for in-person instruction, at home for distance learning, or any of the flexible blended educational models in between, KS Digital can serve as an anchor for continuity across learning experiences and a home base for lessons and tools.
As this platform matures and our resource pool grows, our vision is to provide universal, equitable access to high-quality, accredited K through 12 education combined with innovative Hawaiian culture-based education for haumāna across the globe.
