I'm talking about the youth of today and also the work force in today's competitive companies. Online education is now mainstream with teachers now choosing between careers in schools, tutoring, or teaching online.Online teaching is hot! Our people are now, as Marc Prensky calls them, "Digital Natives" with skills and a mindset suited to todays technical realities. Learning styles have evolved as have our diagnostic tools and categories of learnig styles and dysfunctions. The skills are different too with keyboarding & web researching moving into mainstream skills. And while public schools still dominate the educational system, homeschooling and virtual schools are the two hottest growth areas in education. They're cost effective and they work!
Homeschooling is a hotbed of experimentation with new educational paradigms. Homeschoolers are a diverse group. But homeschoolers do share a few vital characteristics....
A determination to provide the best for your children!
A sense that life has more possibilities than those found by following the crowd!
A personal involvement in educating your child!
A need for some help in putting together an optimal education for each child!
