Vander Ark talks about some recent trends and his preferences for online learning. He tends toward blended learning for most students.
The educational landscape is continually being changed by new innovations in online learning. Online learning solutions provide access to high-quality course materials, which can be administrated in a cost-effective manner.
For school districts looking to embrace online learning, this new approach to learning also provides a method for offering blended classes and is ideal for advanced courses in STEM and foreign languages. And it is a great way to leverage talented teachers, and to provide new career options for many of your teachers.
These are some of the key insights from a recent podcast interview with Tom Vander Ark, who is the author of Getting Smart: How Digital Learning is Changing the World.
As an advocate for innovations that customize and motivate learning and extend access, Tom is also the CEO of Getting Smart, a learning advocacy firm and is a partner in Learn Capital, an education venture capital firm investing in education technology startups.
