Addressing Adolescent Needs for Socialization in the Distance Learning Environment
Dawidowicz, Paula M.
Online Submission
One important aspect of adolescent education, regardless of the learning environment, is learning acceptable human interaction, socialization styles, and cooperation mechanisms. However, when adolescent students attend cyber schools, they no longer receive those traditional opportunities to gain the human interactions required for such socialization during school. This analysis examined the importance of such learning experiences and then considered Utah's Electronic High School, a cyber program model that provides both independent learning and human interaction. This program's success lies in part in its hybrid requirement that students participate in local traditional programs along with cyber classes, so that they still acquire some socialization.
