Note there aren’t any items this month specific to virtual schooling or K-12 online learning, but a number of more general ones that I felt were somewhat applicable or at least might be of interest.
Welcome to the October 15, 2009 edition of virtual schooling.
KidsYogaOnline presents Animal yoga for kids: the hiss of the serpent posted at Kids Yoga Online, saying, “Get slithery with kids yoga when you slide into the cobra yoga pose. As one of the most animated kids yoga exercises, the cobra posture brings flexibility to your spine and strength to your back. Best of all, you get to hisss, just like a real snake!”
Shannon Wills presents Why Online Schools are Popular posted at Hotel Management School, saying, “We’ve always been taught that necessity is the mother of invention, but, in the case of the Internet and its rapid growth, invention and innovation have contributed greatly to satisfying the needs and demands of online education.”
Suzane Smith presents Distractions in E-Learning and How to Avoid Them posted at University Online, saying, “It’s surprising how quickly we adapt to change, especially when it comes in the form of technology. We have advanced rapidly into a world that is now connected mainly through bits and bytes, with the help of a network we call the Internet.”
Shannon Wills presents Accreditation Problems in Internet Mediated Distance Education posted at Criminal Justice Online Degree, saying, “There’s no doubting the fact that the Internet has made life so much easier for all of us – we’re always connected to people in any part of the world, information is accessible at the click of a button, and we’re able to do so much more from the comfort of our homes.”
Linda Jones presents 100 Awesome iTunes Feeds for Every Kind of Teacher posted at AccreditedOnlineColleges.org.
