3. The Basics of Online Learning
Students love to share their work with others. Most teachers post student work in their class or around the school or send work home for parents to post the work on the refrigerator. The Internet provides students a chance to share their work with a worldwide audience which can be a very powerful and motivating opportunity for students. However, we need to make sure to protect our children as they work in this arena. Be sure to have parental permission from parents before posting students' work and never reveal personal information about a student.
