  • 44 states have virtual learning programs. Michigan Virtual School is one of the largest online course providers in the nation with 11,000 course registrations in 2007-2008. MVS partners with local schools to provide core and supplemental courses with over 100 part-time teachers that are Michigan certified, highly qualified instructors. MVS is primarily a supplemental program, although MVS has one full-time program to meet the needs of the Traverse City Area Public Schools.
  • We all know about the use of rubrics to guide students’ participation in discussion forums as a type of reflective learning activity.And we may also have integrated blogs to support meta-processing of the learning experience.Have you also considered YouTube comments, or other forms of community posting an opportunity for reflection on their work or the work of others?
