The School Website as a Virtual Learning Environment
Rotem, Abrham; Oster-Levinz, Anat
Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology - TOJET, v6 n3 p145-156 Jul 2007
Although school websites have existed on the Internet for over fifteen years, in practice the website is not integrated into the organizational-pedagogical system of the school. Against the challenging background of the modern education system and the theoretical facets of realizing a learning environment, this paper will present an online learning environment from the school's organizational and pedagogical perspectives, and will expand on the rationale behind the school website, while describing its characteristics. The proposed website will be characterized by both virtual areas accessible to the general public and by areas restricted to the learning community of teachers and students. In addition, both virtual tools capable of integration into the diverse components comprising the site, and the recommended structure of the website will be presented. The site will fulfill the role of an online learning environment and will reflect schools' activities on various organizational and pedagogical levels.
