Teaching the FHS way
by Sharon Johnston & Mary Mitchell
Focuses on the belief of the Florida High School located in Orlando,
FL that education can be delivered ``any time, any place, any path,
and any pace.'' Reports that courses are accessible via the Web, so
students can log on from wherever Internet connection is available,
and decide when and how they will work. Says that teaching in a
virtual school means the classroom is always open, and the constant
upgrading of technology inspires continual learning of new
technology such as changing course tools, learning new hardware, and
experimenting with new programs. Lists examples of specific models
used by teachers for developing curriculum that is inviting and
engaging, along with examples of key discoveries learned along the
way. Concludes that giving students a choice in delivery systems
offers many benefits and is well worth the challenge.
Contains one photo, one screen display, and a sidebar.
