Journal of Online Learning and Teaching - 7 views

    Jounal designed for faculty and students in higher education.
  •  
    The MERLOT Journal of Online Learning and Teaching (JOLT) is a peer-reviewed, open access, online publication addressing the scholarly use of multimedia resources in online education.
  •  
    I like this journal and how it has a variety of article types- research, case-studies, opinion, position papers, concept papers and best of all it is a free and open journal so there is not that frustration of reading an interesting abstract only to find you can't access the entire article.

Michigan uses online learning to reach at-risk students | Best Practices News | eSchool... - 0 views

  • Westwood Community School’s Cyber High School. This is a pilot program, operating under a state superintendent-approved seat time waiver, that employs a constructivist, online learning model patterned after the United Kingdom’s “Not School,” a research-based program designed expressly for re-engaging dropouts. Westwood students enroll full time as “researchers,” and they work with “mentors” and “experts” (i.e., certified and highly qualified teachers) to earn credit towards the Michigan Merit Curriculum graduation requirements by completing cross-curricular projects. Researchers work collaboratively and/or independently at their own speed in this year-round, 24-7 program. In addition to providing instruction that boasts a six-to-one ratio of students to teachers, Westwood provides researchers with computers, broadband connectivity, and access to in-person learning lab sessions.

Virtual Schools The Right Answer For Many Students - 0 views

      Florida looks like it's a very progressive state by requiring its districts to offer online education for its students.
  • A 2007 study by the Florida TaxWatch Center for Educational Performance and Accountability of the 10-year-old Florida Virtual School found students performed higher than the state average in both reading and mathematics, and earned higher grades than students at standard public schools.
  • Virtual schooling also is becoming more of an option for younger students. The state is requiring every school district to offer kindergarten through eighth-grade virtual classes in 2009-10.
  •  
    It's interesting to see how other states are responding to online education. It seems that Wisconsin has seen it as a threat to public education, while some other states regard it as more of an enhancement.

      This sounds like a great concept. I'm wondering if there are similar classes like this for elementary aged students.
  • "The biggest barrier is funding," says Tim Stroud of the North American Council for Online Learning. But with high-speed lines in place, the marginal cost is small — a school rate of roughly $250 per pupil — and cheaper than hiring a teacher for a small group. Few schools know that online programs exist or realize that learning doesn't require traditional classrooms.

  • True, 90% of public colleges offer online learning, but only 25% of public K-12 schools have caught on, Education Week reports.
  • "Because gifted kids learn the normal curriculum, we sense that their needs are being met," says Ray Ravaglia of EPGY.
  •  
    This site gives a strong example of why online teaching is a good choice for gifted students, as well as going through barriers that prevent school districts from including it as an option in their curriculum.
