The Benefits of Distance Learning - Finding Common Ground - Education Week

The Benefits of Distance Learning - Finding Common Ground - Education Week:

"As educators, we see the current financial issues facing schools not only as an obstacle for ourselves, but more so as a potential hurdle for our students to overcome. Is teaching 30 students more difficult than teaching 20? Yes, absolutely. However, is learning in a classroom with 30 students more difficult than learning in a classroom with 20? Infinitely so. We find ourselves asking "What electives and extracurricular activities are my students going to be offered? Will project based and cooperative learning be effective with increased class sizes and fewer resources? How will my students fare in suboptimal learning situations?" Innately, we are concerned for our students."
