Online learning outcomes

Nevermore Sithole's curator insight, November 14, 2013 5:05 AM

A good and interesting article

robyns tut's curator insight, November 26, 2013 8:45 AM

I understand that this may be an average, however I hope that it is kept in mund that this is not true for many students. I for one have to print out my online notes in order to use them to the best of my ability. Also, even if this is true, I believe that face- to - interaction is being lost in this technological age. but it is still as important as it has always been and that needs to be remembered - Justine Pearce

Our mainstream educational machine is fueled by the idea that adults know best—that adults must impart their knowledge to prepare students for a demanding world. Our responsibility as teachers is to teach students for their own good…a “good” that more and more of us are having difficulty understanding.
