Teachers and the Push for Online Education | Getting Smart

Teachers and the Push for Online Education | Getting Smart:

 "Educational use of Internet technology is on the rise in school districts across the country. But its effectiveness depends on more than just access, to be truly useful, teachers must understand how it works. Technology in schools started slowly, first with email access and then with more regular computer use in classrooms. Today, entire lectures can be broadcast online and students are often encouraged to use internet resources during class, someday it may be the case that the majority of students will attend accredited online universities. Ensuring that teachers are properly trained to use technology resources is fast becoming as big of a budgetary concern as was acquiring the technology in the first place."
