As I mentioned a few weeks ago in IT6230 – Internet In The Classroom, I will be using this blog as a way to provide discussion prompts for students in my IT6230 course (Internet in the Classroom).
The TEGIVS scenarios, as well as the Michigan-based scenarios, are designed to provide information and advice to school-based teachers on what K-12 virtual schooling looks like, some of the issues students face, how it is done, and how the mediating teachers can support it. Based on your use of all eight scenarios, along with the readings to date, our blogging discussions, the information and discussion in class, and your own experiences with K-12 virtual school; what are some of the topics that you think could be added to these scenarios, particularly the Michigan-based one, if more were developed in the future? Describe these ideas and what should be included.
You should post your response as an entry to your own blog by the end of the day on Friday, 29 March. In addition to the entry that you post on your own blog this week, make sure that you comment on at least THREE other students’ blogs by the end of the day on Monday, 01 April.
If you are not a student in my IT6230 course but would like to participate in this discussion, please leave a comment below. In case you are wondering, the readings for this week are:
