My Island View

If teachers learned one thing from these experiences it is that, if you wait and ride it out long enough, all of these initiatives will all go away. Today’s learners have become more directed and into the ownership of their learning. The classroom is no longer the only location where learning takes place. They can use any number of applications to create something from what they have learned and to make things better they can collaborate with anyone globally at anytime.

Nik Peachey

So, here are my 15 reasons why I think developing your teaching online can be more effective. Learn while you teach - This gives you the opportunity to try things out with your own classes working in your own environment with your own students.
