I have been reading threads here for months about how much better E Learning will be this year and today D200 Wheaton rolled out their elementary summer school program that my son participated in. My first impression since I sat in was overall there is more content and the teachers have a better understanding of how to utilize the software so it is light years ahead of where it ended last year which was a pretty low bar if we are being honest. The software is going to be hard for younger kids to use and many of the same problems with down time when trying to do classroom interactions will remain. Overall it is a much better experience but I have a feeling many people advocating for E Learning will be the first ones to complain since it is not going to live up to their expectations and what is being offered is an inferior product to the classroom experience. Also one thing I can see happening that won't be evident right away is the testing gap between rich and poor kids is going to explode and have lasting impact for years to come. I could be wrong and hope I am but I really think once school gets going there will be some buyers remorse so I'm glad my kids will be back in the classroom.
