Expanding Student Learning Without Leaving the Classroom: The Promise of Online Learning & Virtual Exchange
The internet proposed a great promise: anyone from anywhere could connect to exchange information and ideas. As the number of devices that connect to the internet across the world and access to the internet grows, the number of possible connections also grows exponentially. At the forefront of utilizing this new technology are current K-12 students, who find it increasingly natural to learn and connect using computers, tablets, or any other internet-connected device. With the number of connections now available at their fingertips, it is a logical next step to use internet-connected devices in the classroom to increase students’ quality of education and ability to connect with the rest of the world.
