Online Learning Advantages: Why Online Learning Offers Plenty of Incentives | Education | Scoop.it

"Chances are, you’ve heard of eLearning and the benefits that it offers. The fact is, online learning allows students to access their learning materials at any of time of the day, from virtually any location. This makes eLearning a flexible alternative to traditional learning styles, including classroom work."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 26, 7:15 PM

Having good manners and being civil are essential. An important consideration is how authentic the behaviours are. I told students that sorry was another word in the dictionary unless they made a conscious effort to change problematic behaviours. I found that many of the managers I worked for in School knew the right words, but rarely used them with authenticity. It was about appearance rather than really transforming the self. Those who were authentic reached out to others and helped bridge differences with their work.

Technology and Graduation Rate: A Direct Correlation ~ Huffington Post

Technology and Graduation Rate: A Direct Correlation ~ Huffington Post | Education | Scoop.it

by Matthew Lynch

 

"...technology has made it possible for students who fall off the traditional path to jump back on and finish what they spent most of their childhood working towards. This may be in the form of taking remote classes from home, remedial classes in on-campus computer labs or even by enrolling in full-time online schools, public or private. The technology available for these options benefits students who face difficulties with a normal school schedule including teenage parents, students with short-term or long-term illnesses, teens with substance abuse struggles, or those who had poor academic performance due to learning disabilities or bullying."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 24, 10:19 PM

What is interesting is that other sources indicate there is a growing digital divide. Could it be both are happening? We have some communities graduating students in greater numbers and others struggling. Is it possible what we look for is what we find in research sometimes?

Those two words, thank you, can mean so much when used authentically and kindly with children. They learn to be thankful as adults model appropriate behaviours. Play and education are inseparable.
