Online Learning Experiences in Michigan

As you may or may not know, Michigan is now requiring an “online learning experience” for high school students graduating in 2011 and beyond. It’s a good idea and one that will help move both students and teachers along the technology road. The requirements aren’t too stringent, but the guidelines provided by the state may seem a bit nebulous.

To help out, members of the Michigan REMC Association have developed a Companion Document (pdf) for districts to use as a planning tool.  The document answers some common questions as well as emphasizes key points.  More importantly, it details several examples of activities or strategies and how they could be used to fulfill the requirements using these Essential Characteristics of Quality Online Learning Experiences:

  • Collaborative experience between students
  • Integrated
  • Sustainability
  • Life-long Learning Skills
  • Teacher Involvement

It’s a great tool…thanks to all those who worked on it!
