Secondary School Students, Online Learning, and External Support in New Zealand
Dewstow, Ross; Wright, Noeline
Computers in the Schools, v22 n1-2 p111-122 Jul 2005
Efforts combining online learning with classroom-based learning in secondary schools are not often reported. It is even more unusual to read reports detailing ways in which external experts can help both students and teachers learn "on-the-job" using both classroom and online facilities. This is particularly true in New Zealand, where teachers in secondary schools are beginning to understand the possibilities of online learning as an adjunct to normal classroom activities. This report describes a small project in which a secondary school teacher and her students learn about Web design as part of their ICT (information communication technologies) subject and work with an external expert from the local university. Within this project, the external expert acts as a facilitator for both the students' and the teacher's learning.
