Front Cover
Rowman & Littlefield Education, 2006 - Computers - 331 pages
109 Ideas For Virtual Learning reveals the online knowledge venue that today's generation uses to learn. Calling today's online venue "the virtual knowledge ecology," Judy Breck describes the networking of open content for learning online, where knowledge is fresher, authoritative, and more compelling than at school. Breck details how information from traditional resources makes its way onto the Internet and explains how network mechanisms interconnect that information once it gets online. She says the resulting knowledge ecology helps students worldwide study from the same virtual page. Virtual knowledge ecology opens the way for a global golden age of education in which students learn more and teachers are respected professionals. Book jacket.
