Education online: The virtual lab - 4 views

  •  
    Chris Ryan in NATURE. Fascinating article. For roughly a year, universities around the world have been rushing to partner with the major MOOC companies in a move that many believe could revolutionize higher education. Can virtual labs be used in a MOOC? There is an attempt being made. How do virtual labs measure up against real-life labs? There are some real advantages. (Found by another student in my E-Learning class.)

Virtual Forensics Lab | Boston College - 2 views

  • The Virtual Forensics laboratory is designed to teach applied forensic science through game-based learning. Set in a three-dimensional game space, the lab enables students to both practice photographing and collecting evidence such as fingerprints, blood spatter, and weapons in a recreated crime scene, and examine related case materials such as 911 calls, psychological examinations, and police interrogations. By guiding them through the process of analyzing evidence and recreating the events of the crime, the virtual lab helps student practice the critical thinking skills involved in deducing the motivations for crimes and identifying likely offenders.

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 in a fight for adequate funding | Featured on eSchool News | eSchoolNew... - 2 views

  • Two proposed virtual schools in Georgia got the OK to open this fall, but with very limited funding. Their plans are now on hold while they appeal the state’s decision, which supporters of online instruction say was based on politics and not a careful analysis of the costs necessary to operate a high-quality virtual school. What’s more, virtual school advocates say Georgia is not alone in funding virtual schools at a level that is dramatically lower than what traditional schools receive per pupil.
