Review: On Demand Learning

My children who are 5 and 3 are so tech savvy, they can manoeuvre a mouse, find letters and numbers on the keyboard, start up my itouch to watch icarly and spongebob and play blow up puffer fish.  Isn't that crazy? In my day (oh my, I'm sounding like my Mom) I got a manual type writer when I was a tween and had access to a computer at high school for projects.  At college, instant message was this DOS system with a black screen and flashing > key (remember that LOL).  

Are we supposed to embrace technology with the igeneration?  I'm all for embracing technology, this is the way of the future - there's no going back now.  Can you live without facebook and twitter?  can you live without your cell phone and texting?  Of course we need to set the boundaries and ensure our children are guided through the high tech world in an appropriate manner.

To reach out to the igeneration in their high-tech, high-touch world, many parents and educators are looking at how to rewire schools to match how the iGeneration learns.

There is an online website, which gives middle and high school students (and their school districts) new options to learn.  With lots of schools facing budget cuts with the current economic climate, students are increasingly able to take online classes in partnership with their local school districts.  View a video and demo and decide if this is a solution or option for your children.  I'm all for empowering our children, our future.  With a loving home, good moral values and good standing education, every child should be truly nourished.
