VS Preparedness and Ongoing Support- Mary Broussard VS Preparedness and Ongoing Support- Mary Broussard Presentation Transcript

  • Mary R. BroussardUniversity of Louisiana at Lafayette
  • This presentation was created to help you to understand some of the issues and challenges surrounding the preparedness and ongoing support needed for K-12 students to learn successfully online.
  •  Online students must be driven by self-motivation do to online classes being mainly self-paced. Teachers must work extra hard to keep a student motivated and engaged in online learning. Students are typically focused to complete assignments solely due to the amount of interest and motivation that have in a particular assignment. Because students do not have direct access to a teacher and because motivation is an important factor, it is extremely important for teachers to tap into each student’s interests, learning styles, and engage them accordingly.
