New Research Suggests Virtual Learning Could Soon Play Larger Role
As summer approaches, some students are scrambling for ways to earn back credits or get ahead. New research shows a current learning tool for Florida students may be the answer for this summer and in the future.
University of Florida associate professor Cathy Cavanaugh wrote a report titled "Getting Students More Learning Time Online." In it she says that schools should consider implementing longer school days with a greater emphasis on virtual courses. Cavanaugh says the Sunshine State is ahead of the pack when it comes to a push for online learning.
"Florida schools are more ready than most to make a move toward implementing online courses to meet student needs," she said.
Florida Virtual School offers courses to both middle and high school students.
