Do you think that tutoring or homeschooling could be replaced by e-learning or web camera courses ?
Could a real teacher be replaced by a camera ?
What is the best way to find a solution to integrate the E-Learning without loosing the benefits of a great present teacher ?
yes, my daughter finished her last two years of high school through ECOT, Electronic Schools of Tomorrow and it was all on line from home. She spoke to her teachers more, received better grades and liked school better in general. I have an older daughter whom is now pre-law and she did all four years at public high school and received excellent grades. Two different daughters who took two different path's and now my youngest is headed off to college next week. I am so proud of both of them. They found ways that worked best for them and are happy. What more can a mom ask? Now wouldn't it save each school system so much money not to have to bus all the kids, maintain brick and mortar buildings, all the electronics, teachers pay roll, insurance, cafeteria - we'd certainly have enough money for the arts and sports after deducting all of that wouldn't we. The teacher's work from home, pay no gas to get to work, no work cloths the list just goes on. My youngest attended the largest graduating class in the whole country! All kids from Ohio, the school is based in Columbus. They started ten years ago or there about and started with twelve students now they just graduated over two thousand. Yes, this is the way of the future. Ellen
Thank you very much Ellen, for this replys, it's very interesting.
I think that in fact the education system should be adapetd to each student to allow the child find the best way to learn and be happy !
I just saw the ECOT web site ! It's great as idea. I didn't know that public nline schools exist !!! It's really a great alternative for children , I love it.
Why this possibility is only for OHIO children ? or there are other public online school like this ?
Dear Soutienscoairefr, so nice that you visited ECOT"s web site! I'm sure other state's have on line schools, how ever, this was the best one we could find for our state that actually some staff at our local school directed us to. This school in particular is wonderful for those that are gifted and are already gaining many college credits as well - the AP classes are wonderful, could be for the kids that just absolutely do not like school or do well in that environment, children who have physical reasons that makes it difficult to go to public school, children that are getting bullied and I'm sure the list goes on. But, I know my daughter had to attend an online school based in Ohio, where we live. It happens to be the biggest in the country. I think other States are catching on. And, I have seen ads for schools based in other States. I'm very happy we happen to live in Ohio and she could attend ECOT. I Started reading more of your writings and you have gained a very happy and follower! Ellen

I have decided to home school my daughter. We can't really afford private schools, and public schools have destroyed their curriculum with standardized tests. I am curious to see what you all think.

I often wonder if there are other formerly-homeschooled adults out there. Homeschooling was relatively unheard of when I was in school, but the numbers today are huge.I wrote a very short hub about being hoemschooled....

<snipped - no promotional links in the forums>I, for one, am completely shocked to learn that child support extends well into adulthood in some states. This is a little saddening that an adult can still receive...

I have a 14 month old and another due next month. Obviously we're not going to start homeschooling yet, but I was just wondering when did people start. Of course we're always trying to learn.
