Pros for virtual learning

Pros for Virtual Learning

Cyber education has many other advantages:

  • It permits students in small, rural, or low-wealth school districts to take specialized courses that would ordinarily not be available to them.

  • It provides home schooled students with instruction in subjects their parents might not be able to teach, such as foreign languages or computer skills.

  • It meets the needs of school phobics, those in hospitals or recovering at home, dropouts who would like to get back in, expelled students, single parents, and students in other states or even other countries looking for nontraditional educational solutions.

  • And, in an age when many of our schools are overcrowded or crumbling, cyber learning makes financial sense, too, because schools using distance learning do not need to modernize or build new buildings in order to provide quality cyber instruction.

    Research shows 60% of teachers had access to home computers, and there are a variety of types of operating systems that not compatable to the school systems

  • Time

    Takes time to master new routines and programs

  • Access and Equality

    Students who have access to computers have an advantage to those who don’t have access

  • Learning patterns

    School based assessment demands that it’s the work of individuals
