Part 1 - What I know about K-12 online learning
My experience with online learning is relatively new and what I know and understand about online learning is that it is another way of delivering education other than in a traditional classroom setting. Online learning goes beyond the four walls of a classroom it can take place anywhere. Almost any subject can be taught online. It also gives any type student the opportunity to work independently or collaborate with other students and teachers anywhere in the world. In my opinion, online learning for today's k-12 students is becoming more of a traditional way of being taught and for older students (other than k-12) online learning can be considered a new way of being taught. However, working in an online environment can be isolating if you are not use to working in that type of environment. It requires you to think a little differently in how you work and communicate with other people. Educators also have to be creative in how they deliver instruction in this type of learning environment.
