Education Week: Research Shows Evolving Picture of E-Education - 0 views

  • Research shows that virtual schooling can be as good as, or better than, classes taught in person in brick-and-mortar schools
  • But that broad conclusion, which comes mainly from a couple of research syntheses published in 2001 and 2004, masks a lot of variation in the designs of online classes and in who takes them
  • to figure out under what conditions, what scenarios, in what content areas, and with what students.”
  • ...8 more annotations...
  • draw students at the extremes of the academic spectrum
  • high-performing students tend to be younger,
  • the best academic records in online classes tend to be in that high-ability group

    • Mr. Carver
       
      Probably the most important thought in the whole aritcle. Technology (as with anything) is useless on its own. Support needs to be there.
  • “You pay attention to what’s going on,” she says, “and you respond to them as individuals.”
    • Mr. Carver
       
      Isn't that a standard practice of good teaching?
  • But research has far to go to identify exactly what factors make an online course effective.

  • parental involvement diminishes as the child gets older. While this is a natural part of growing up, parents can continue to play a strong role in their child’s education and development at school and it has been shown that this has a significant impact on attainment
  • online reporting

  • online reporting:
  • By making it as easy as possible to see information about their child, it can encourage some parents to become more involved, and by changing the attitudes of parents, the whole school can benefit.

    Along the lines of research I think have any bookmark or annotation come with a citation. If you copy into notebook programs (like Google NoteBook and OneNote) the citation comes with it. The temptation for straight plagarism is high with this type of annotation.

If they had the ability to enter the notes from their print-based research to the same location that they bookmarked the websites they used it would make things much easier. No more bookmarks in Diigo or another platform as well as a separate notebook for print resources -- everything can be one place.
