Virtual Classes for K-12 Students

As of fall 2014, up to 26 states in the United States have implemented virtual classes for their K12 students, according to KPK12.com. It is a move that is proving to be beneficial to students’ learning experience and is helping them be prepared for college.

Why Choose Virtual Classes

Parents have a variety of reasons for why they choose virtual schools for their children. Here are some of them.

Convenience

Virtual classes can be taken according to the students’ availability. They have control over their schedule. They can study at the comfort of their homes at the time they set themselves.

Individualized Learning

Students’ ability is assessed at the beginning of the class and are then provided with an individualized learning plan tailored to their specific needs. Students’ areas of strength are enhanced and focused on areas of opportunity provided through the learning plan. The approach is 1 to 1, unlike in a traditional learning setting where students are given the same learning plan despite their differences in ability to learn and their varying needs. Aside from that, students can learn at their own pace. For example, if a student shows excellence in English but struggles in math, the student is given exercises and won’t be able to move to the next level until he or she can show a full understanding of the topic at hand.

Responsibility

Students who are currently enrolled in virtual classes are taught to be responsible for their own learning.

They learn how to keep track of their own progress and to remember and meet deadlines. Their computer skills are enhanced since they work with it regularly.
