Transcript

  • 1. Technology and K-12 Education
    Amy Rodgers Smith
  • 2. Technology and K-12 Education
    45 out of 50 high schools have online learning centers for their students
  • 3. Technology and K-12 Education
    Research is showing that students are performing as well, sometimes better, using online instruction methods.
  • 4. Technology and K-12 EducationThree reasons why online instruction is so successful:
    #1. It is personalized
    Students can choose the courses, instructors, and schedule.
  • 5. Technology and K-12 EducationThree reasons why online instruction is so successful:
    #2. It “levels the playing field”
    Students that attend small, rural schools where the staff does not hold as high of credentials as a larger, urban school’s staff might, can still benefit from online classes facilitated by teachers with higher qualifications.
  • 6. Technology and K-12 EducationThree reasons why online instruction is so successful:
    #3. Money
    Some entire departments have been cut at schools, such as physics, and online courses allow students to still earn the necessary credits and learn the necessary skills to prepare them for the careers they want to pursue on the college level.
  • 7. Technology and K-12 Education
    Blended learning is when a student has some sort of online instruction supplementing the face-to-face instruction he/she is receiving. This seems to be the way of the near future when it comes to K-12 classrooms.
  • 8. Technology and K-12 Education
    There is still some controversy over how social networking sites play a role in education.
  • 9. Technology and K-12 Education
    There are certain ways, like a wiki monitor, to keep students safe as they navigate blogs and other social networking sites, for learning purposes.
