Part 1

My Doctoral Dissertation was titled: Examining whether there is a difference between online and traditional college students. Although my dissertation concerned college students, many of the same principles apply to High School and Elementary School. The main thing is the quality of education difference between the two forms of pedagogy [ped-uh-goh-jee, -goj-ee] a noun that is defined as; the function or work of a teacher; teaching the art or science of teaching and educational / teaching methodology.

Although my biography lists my diplomas, I wanted to provide my experience with the American School System. I spent my first 5 of 17 years in enrollment in a classroom format. The teaching, teacher support and on-campus support were excellent; although I was 52 when I started classes in 2000. I was amazed at the acceptance I received from the younger students in my classes. As I got older, my classmates wanted to know what I thought they should and shouldn’t do, regarding their choices of, not just classes but often life choices.

This is an axiom of all students whether they are college, high school or elementary level. During these students, especially when they reach their teenage years, and (think their parents are idiots), they will listen to an outside adult influence. That’s why my advice to parents is to first find an adult who values ​​education and ask them to be yours. 2nd teacher. If the child is early aware of what the true meaning and possibilities for their future are, (at an early age), they will learn that taking time to research and consider risk management in their decisions will produce better choices for them in that future. !

I would like to expand my statement on my enrollment in a classroom format. Not only does the student receive face-to-face instruction, but more importantly they may receive the instructions when the topic does not make any sense to the student. Face-to-face instruction allows the teacher to spend QUALITY time with the student where he / she can understand the student and adjust their curriculum to accommodate the students emotional and physical Adagio. [e-‘da-j(e-)o] noun, defined as; at a slow tempo or speed!

As indicated many times over many years, additional benefits occur from social interaction and student bonding. The benefit of our children to exercise and learn sportsmanship and fair play is greatly underestimated by our local, state and especially federal governments. This is demonstrated by the cuts to funding social and sports activities. This created Milieu [meel-YOO] noun, defined as; surrounding culture and environment where true education has taken a back seat to funding military weapons to our police. Hence a reduction in salary for school teachers and our local school districts.

Many parents today consider elementary and high school teachers to be nothing more than well-educated babysitters and do not take advantage of the opportunities given to them to have a voice in what happens in their child’s education. This is evidenced by the many jokes made about “parents, teacher conferences”. It is my opinion that all parents (or at least one parent) should be required to attend these opportunities to control what and how our students should learn.

Over the next few weeks I will be reviewing the Amalgam [e-MAL-gem] defined as; mix or combination – of brick and mortar educational opportunities compared to online learning. Next week I will discuss the Blurring [ob·fus·cat·ing] verb, defined as; to obscure or obscure, the advantages (small) to the disadvantages (large) of total online educational formats, teaching, teacher support and campus support.
