Study finds virtual learning to be more effective

Students of all ages seem to perform better in virtual classrooms than in real ones, a 12-year study conducted by SRI International for the Department of Education has found. Online courses have evolved to include Web-based video, instant messaging and collaboration to give students a more individualized experience than they would get in the classroom.

The same has been found for adults. Have you checked out the Peaceful Playgrounds online learning courses?. We currently have two courses: Playground Supervisor Training and Peaceful Playgrounds Workshop.
