Putting the “e” in Learning for the “i”-Generation
Date: June 23, 2010
Time: 2:00 pm EDT / 11:00 am PST
Duration: One hour (15 mins for Q&A)
Today’s high-tech, high-touch teens are a whole new breed of students who’ve been wired, Wi-Fied, mobile, virtually augmented and i-computed like no other generation before them. As their world of customization, instant gratification and immediate feedback collides with overflowing classrooms and traditional stand-and-deliver learning, how can we re-wire our educational approach to re-engage the iGeneration?
Hear firsthand what middle and high school students are saying about their current educational experience, why online learning is effective for students today and how the relationship between teachers and students change with the addition of an online program.
In this webinar, attendees will learn:
- How online learning can address the needs of the iGeneration and enable individualized learning
- How to determine if an online learning program is right for your school
- How schools are effectively integrating online learning into their educational environments
Aventa Learning Chief Academic Officer Cathy Mincberg will also share insights and case studies that reflect how online learning has met schools/school districts’ and students’ education goals, enabled previously struggling learners to graduate on time and helped online students progress to the next level at a faster pace.
