“Cyberlearning blows apart the walls of the classroom and allows new experiences that were never possible or practical before.”
This quote is from an awesome video from Mindshift on how cyberlearning is transforming the way students learn science. At 7 minutes, it’s a bit long, but I encourage you to watch the whole thing. The students’ enthusiasm and the learning experiences made possible by technology are inspiring!
Through cyberlearning, students are experiencing science in ways that would not otherwise be possible. Virtual labs and simulations make it possible to replicate experiments that could not be conducted in even the most sophisticated school science lab. Mobile technology allows students to experience science out in the world, rather than behind a desk, while activity-based projects “give kids ownership of their learning.”
