E-Learning: Crayons and Computers

E-learning, or electronic learning, refers to learning through the use of an interactive, electronic device. Frequently, this learning occurs through a process of completing tasks while using the Internet. Just as with a physical classroom, respect and commitment are critical to student participation and success. 

Regardless of where you fall on the spectrum with regards to belief in  the effectiveness of e-learning, it's here. Learn how to use e-learning effectively with your students now. Teach your students to be respectful and safe online. Understand it is another tool, just like a crayon.

As with the great painters in history, a crayon became a paintbrush which lead to the creation of the masterpieces. The same will be true for our students, computer usage will become e-learning which will then lead to the creation of the masterpieces of tomorrow.
