Online Learning in the Windy City

At a time when we are asking school districts to do more and more with less and less, how do we maximize the resources and opportunities we currently have?  While many folks may see online learning in K-12 as a great idea, but one they aren’t willing to fully embrace in practice, Chicago Public Schools is showing us how online learning can be effectively used.

Over at edReformer, Eduflack has a new blog post post on how CPS is using online learning to supplement the learning process and improve high school grad rates in the process.  As I say on edReformer, if we are serious about improving all schools for all students, we need to look closely at what Chicago is doing so we can maximize an instructional component like online learning, not minimize it.

One of the arguments against Home Schooling is the idea that the student will lack socialization. There has been no studies to prove this and a number that disprove this theory. I do however find it Ironic that I have not heard this as an issue for public school students who will one day learn from online course,a second life learning experience.
