Blending virtual and physical schools

Piers YoungNotesLeave a Comment

Virtual education should not be “the end of school.” Rather, it is one great opportunity to re-imagine school. Please, don’t make your alternative to the boring classroom a bunch of kids sitting home alone.

SpeEdChange has written a wonderful, thought-provoking post on how schools could cope with “the future”. I think it’s spot on to try to keep the physical space. Not because we want to institutionalise things, but because it provides a valuable place for children to play, learn, and be themselves away from parents. The social part of education is just as important as the academic.
