If you are thinking of teaching online or are a parent who attends a school and want your children to learn online while at home, you may need to do some research. Maybe you should consider the ones out there and the various hybrid courses and technology issues that cover the world of Internet courses and online learning.
The other day, there was a very interesting article in the Wall Street Journal about why we should never have any bad weather that would interfere with school. If unfavorable weather conditions prevented school buses from escaping or the blizzard from going to school, then each student could learn at home on their computers. The article made a number of compelling arguments, and I found similar controversial points in a book on the subject.
In fact, I would like to go out of my way to recommend this book to you right now, and this is my personal library book. This is the title of this book; “Online teaching – a practical guide” (College teaching series – second edition) By Susan Ho and Steve Rossen, Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston, MA, (2004), 339 pages, ISBN: 0-618-29848-7.
There is a wealth of information on online teaching and what it is all about, and while it is written from an institutional educator’s point of view, it certainly helps parents understand what courses, online curricula, and information they are interested in when choosing. children read and learn. It is not easy to teach in an online classroom, but those who have the ability and talent to produce it are the most sought after and sought after teachers.
Why not take a copy of this book to learn about low-tech and high-tech solutions used in Internet education. You can also find discussion boards where you can communicate with teachers and how to use boards, chat features, and instant messaging to make your online classroom feel at home. Why not learn what teachers go through when they put together curricula and how they prepare themselves for their students.
As a parent, I want to know how the online education system works, what kind of software and hardware works best, and how teachers communicate with my children. You need to know this in advance, it is very important, and therefore I recommend this book to you. I really hope that you will consider all this and think about it.
