What is the answer to this? Simple — online learning.
Given that we are only five years away from welcoming the incoming class of 2020, this research from the OLC makes the state of technology transition and adoption in K12 and Higher Education seem a bit grim: “Despite growing interest from academic leaders, they say only 28% of their faculty see value in online teaching.”
What can we do to help every potential college student be eligible and prepared to receive an equivocal postsecondary education like their peers today? We have to be a part of the 28%.
72% of teaching faculty do not see value in online teaching — but this information makes it quite clear that we are running out of time to, as Leandro puts it, provide “a sound, basic education” for all of our students.
Here are some resources to get you started with blended learning in your classroom today — a combination of face-to-face and online learning.
If you’re interested in being a part of the 28% to expand and innovate in K-12 online education to pave the way for postsecondary online learning opportunities, don’t just sit idle. Be a part of the solution!
