“Since my high school got Google Chromebooks and moved curriculum into Google Classroom, there was never any disruption from snow days. We never had a break in learning and teachers could count on us to do our work and not have to recover content at school.”
– Adam Ray
It's been my experience with online learning that students who wish to pursue a career in a field in which their high school does not offer a traditional class for, this will allow them to gain the experience and hours needed toward obtaining that goal. I have taken an online college algebra course and an online course called Foundation of Sports Medicine. I took both those courses because I knew I wanted to go to college and taking college algebra now would open up more opportunities to take classes needed for my major.
I have always been interested in sports, so I wanted to see if going into a field of sports medicine or kinesiology might be an option for me. In my experience of learning in a traditional classroom as compared to learning in an online environment, I have really enjoyed the challenge of the online classes. It has allowed me to work ahead in some cases as well as become more responsible for my learning.
