Just a decade ago, the notion of attending high school on the Internet seemed futuristic. Yet, today, thousands of students are doing just that. This authoritative volume is the first to provide a thorough, detailed account of the virtual high school. Based on a 5-year study conducted by experienced researchers at SRI International, this book answers such questions as: What is the difference between an online and a face-to-face classroom? What is it like to take, or to teach, an online course? Are online courses effective? What are the problems with its use? Will this new technology change the way teaching and learning is done? Providing invaluable insight into an increasingly popular educational technology, this book: Examines the phenomenal growth of virtual high schooling, especially through the lens of one of the pioneering efforts--the Hudson Public Schools-Concord Consortium Virtual High School (VHS). Draws on a massive research study that includes surveys, focus groups, classroom observations, and interviews with superintendents, principals, teachers, students, and leaders of many virtual high schools. Provides a balanced perspective that addresses both the strengths and weaknesses of online learning, including lessons learned. Provides crucial information to assist educators and policymakers in creating, adapting, and learning how to effectively use these new online schools. Examines the implications that online schooling has for the future of education.

Drawing from the information presented at conference sponsored by the Harvard Graduate School of Education and the Mid-Atlantic Regional Technology in Education Consortium, leading educators, researchers, and policymakers, "Scaling Up Success" translate, theory into practice and provide, a hands-on resource that clearly describes different models for "scaling up" success. This important resource is filled with illustrative examples of best practices that are grounded in real-life case studies of technology-based educational innovation3/4from networking a failing school district in New Jersey to using computer visualization to teach scientific inquiry in Chicago. "Scaling Up Success" show how the lessons learned from technology-based educational innovation can be applied to other school improvement efforts.

With an emphasis on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) training, Teacher Learning in the Digital Age examines exemplary models of online and blended teacher professional development, including information on the structure and design of each model, intended audience, and existing research and evaluation data. From video-based courses to just-in-time curriculum support platforms and MOOCs for educators, the cutting-edge initiatives described in these chapters illustrate the broad range of innovative programs that have emerged to support preservice and in-service teachers in formal and informal settings. "As teacher development moves online," the editors argue, "it's important to ask what works and what doesn't and for whom," They address these questions by gathering the feedback of many of the top researchers, developers, and providers working in the field today. Filled with abundant resources, Teacher Learning in the Digital Age reveals critical lessons and insights for designers, researchers, and educators in search of the most efficient and effective ways to leverage technology to support formal, as well as informal, teacher learning.

Learning in the Cloud - How (and Why) to Transform Schools with Digital Media (Paperback): Mark Warschauer Learning in the Cloud - How (and Why) to Transform Schools with Digital Media (Paperback)
Mark Warschauer; Foreword by Chris Dede
R966 R861 Discovery Miles 8 610 Save R105 (11%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

This comprehensive and cutting-edge book portrays a vision of how digital media can help transform schools, and what kinds of curriculum, pedagogy, assessment, infrastructure, and learning environments are necessary for that transformation to take place. The author and his research team spent thousands of hours observing classes and interviewing teachers and students in both successful and unsuccessful technology-rich schools throughout the United States and other countries. Featuring lessons learned as well as analysis of the most up-to-date research, they offer a welcome response to simplistic approaches that either deny the potential of technology or exaggerate its ability to reform education simply by its presence in schools. Challenging conventional wisdom about technology and education, Learning in the Cloud: Critically examines concepts such as the digital divide, 21st-century skills, and guide on the side for assessing and guiding efforts to improve schools. Combines a compelling vision of technology's potential to transform learning with an insightful analysis of the curricular challenges required for meaningful change. Discusses the most recent trends in media and learning, such as the potential of tablets and e-reading.
