For part one, I want you to write an entry TO YOUR OWN BLOG that describes what you currently know about K-12 online learning, virtual schooling, or cyber schooling (all three are the same thing, it is just called different things). Here are some questions which can guide you (although note that you do not have to address each of these questions, they are just to get the juices flowing so to speak).
- What does it look like?
- How is it done?
- Where it is done?
- What kind of students take it?
- What kind of courses are offered?
For part two, you will post a second blog entry TO YOUR OWN BLOG by the end of the day on Sunday, April 5th. After you complete the readings for this week, visit and read the Top 10 Myths about Virtual Schools. Based upon the readings and this website, what did you learn that surprised you? Where there things you posted in part one that were false (were any of them listed in the top 10 myths)? Where there things you posted in part one that were accurate?
In Week 13, you will be given specific instructions (groupings, prompts) for the discussion period. However, in the meantime, feel free to comment on either of the two posts of any of your classmates.
