Camps and Classes
Miacademy is an interactive learning site offering a well-rounded K-8th grade learning experience. Use Miacademy as the core of your curriculum, or as a supplement to your curriculum with many topics and activities that are unique to Miacademy. Each student follows his or her own personalized learning path. Language Arts and Math are core areas in which our members are challenged each day. Other subject areas include: Science, Geography, History, Foreign Languages: Spanish, French, German, Chinese, Greek and Latin, and life skills such as typing, health, and internet safety. Kids create art and "sell" it for in-game-currency to other members who decorate their homes and clothe their avatars with these creations. Members apply math by setting prices in their stores and even set an advertising budget! Kids write for the Miacademy Weekly, the site's member-written newspaper. Our moderators remind them to use proper spelling and writing style. Other members provide encouraging feedback. And if some students try to post not-so-encouraging comments, our moderators won't allow those to be published! While the core teaching is provided by our video tutors, students can also produce videos to share on Miacademy. A special reward is given for videos that help other members learn about academic topics or real-life skills. A dedicated instructional video, as well as feedback from parents and moderators, help kids to improve their video-making, presentation, and teaching skills. Students learn invaluable social skills by interacting with other students on the site in a safe, moderated environment. Kids can represent themselves with a creative avatar and comment on the creations of other members. Parents can choose the level of in-game interaction they feel comfortable with. Miacademy teaches much more than just academic skills. Important life skills taught on our site include 10-finger typing, learning about health, manners, and more. Our business simulation teaches creativity, marketing skills, and cost management - valuable lessons with huge payoffs in the future!
