Through Educational Technology

Once upon a family education might be considered old-fashioned . This is usually because of family education homeschooling for religious reasons , sitting at the table to do a job, from a historical icon , and learn from the old public school readers stereotype possible. Like all stereotypes there may be some basic facts , but today is the outbreak of family education stereotype . Today, family education is often at least as technologically advanced as their counterparts in traditional education . This is true , in part because homeschooled students are not sitting in isolation outdated textbook study in their own homes , but by a technology of the latest available materials. Many homeschooled students are participating in distance learning , part of self -directed learning and online courses.
Distance Learning
Distance education or distance learning is a method of presentation of educational materials showing work by correspondence , or presented on the Internet. It allows students to have access to professors and other experts believe may not be available locally. Students generally use the Internet to class, do not require attendance at school. Technology used for distance learning in many different variations. Some programs are broadcast at a specific time on the Internet , all students must sign in , similar to an online meeting site . This type of distance learning is called synchronous or live it . Other programs , uploading to the Internet for students to use when they have time. This type of distance learning is sometimes called asynchronous distance education .
Self-directed learning
Self-directed learning is similar to distance learning . Some universities offer free online courses. The courses are usually not provided with credit, they still represent a huge body of information . Most of these courses are available online , free of charge, and often contain both video and search for handouts . An example of this type of educational material is MIT OpenCourseWare . By searching the Internet OpenCourseWare can be seen, some of the prestigious universities offer similar OCW . For self-directed learning Another option is Khan Academy . Offers courses do not provide credit . In fact, it can even consider the many complex issues free online tutoring in math and science are broken down into easily digestible , short-term lectures. Although this course is available on the Internet free of charge, is a good way for students to gain knowledge , it is generally not provide credit . However , there is no argument, this work is an attractive addition to the home school transcripts and college entrance and CLEP tests can take a lot of preparation.
Online Courses
Online course tutor students from preschool through 12th grade curriculum . Sometimes difficult to see the difference between distance learning and online courses between . May be the main difference is that the majority of online teaching and curriculum is presented on the Internet , and most of the courses. General learning of the course line does not have a "live" teachers, students answer. Many tests are multiple choice or fill-in by the program in the answer , although there is often a high -grade writing assignments , parents will have to go to school for their own class of students to complete the form at home . Online courses can be used to supplement the core curriculum and education . An example of online courses is Time4Learning.
Other options
There are many other opportunities for homeschooled students to participate in their education career advantages of technology . The Internet is , in some cases , taking the place of the library. Since many families no longer buy a set of encyclopedias in the internet is a great research tool. There are many topic-specific websites , providing teaching materials and educational games . Homeschooled students often do not have access to the same materials, traditional education students do, so learning to use technology to provide homeschooled students the opportunity to learn and expand their horizons , they may not have otherwise .
