Online Learning May Be Closer Than We Think

In a recent discussion with members of our state association professional development committee, much time was spent discussing the future of technology in our schools, most specifically the discussion centered on online learning.

Disrupting Class, Clayton Christensen's book, devotes quite a few pages to online learning.  A friend passed on to me reporter Tamar Lewin's article "Israeli Entrepreneur Plans a Free Global University That Will Be Online Only."  Also, check out the Independent School Educators Network website.

Finally, I pass on this one minute video to my readers, not as an endorsement of Kaplan University but as a window into a path education may be taking sooner than we think.  You might want to watch it a few times to take in the various avenues used for online teaching.
