Advantages of Online instruction Cost savings Convenience Time savings Location Better structured instruction
But what is our goal? Make instruction available? Pass/licensure? Is online instruction as good? No
You take the teacher out of the equation Good teachers get good results. JC Rivers Technology boring students. The Chronicle of Higher Education. July 21, 2009 Face to face better. Herbert J. Walberg
Walberg lists several components, like clearly identified academic standards, direct teaching, and encouraging increased parental involvement, that when used together, improve learning. Herbert J. Walberg
Does the delivery of classroom material suffer online? Who wrote the curriculum? Is the material outdated, etc? Is the curriculum better? What are the kids learning? Are they prepared for the BTW?
FYI, online cheaters We are a nation of law breakers 75-80% of students report they cheat 50% see nothing wrong with it 95% say they have never been caught Using ethics to prevent? Make it harder to cheat
Online instruction is only as good as the STUDENT wants it to be
What do we really want here? License or permit. Everyone gets one Let the parents teach them? Save money? Postpone driving? Age 17? Age 18? How about age 25? Better prepared drivers?
What are we doing? Many states have gone to online delivery of Driver Education

Virginia Welcome to the VADETS Online Driver Education Course! We look forward to contributing to your driving success and keeping you collision free! Experienced Virginia driver education teachers designed this course and welcome any suggestions you may have to improve this learning experience. During this course, you will have the opportunity to explore a variety of driving situations and learn how to minimize driving risks by effectively managing visibility, time, space, and available tire traction. As you know, driving is an essential life skill; and you, as a good driver, can contribute positively to the driving world. This course allows you to work at your own pace to gain a solid understanding of the essential traffic safety concepts. The only thing standing between you and success is effort. At the end of each topic, there is a quiz to check your level of understanding, and a test at the end of the module to see if you have the proficiency to move on to the next module. On the test, you must answer at least 85% of the questions correctly before proceeding to the next module. To assist in your studies, there is a student workbook. The workbook should be completed online as you study each topic. Save the workbook to your desktop each time you work on it. At the end of each module, there will be a command on your course menu to upload the workbook. This workbook is a course requirement and must be completed.
Va continued A Virginia driver education teacher will review your work and answer any questions or help clear up any concepts you do not understand. You may communicate with your teacher through the message center. If you have any questions or require help during your course studies, use the "Contact your teacher" option provided in your message menu to notify your teacher, this feature will automatically alert your teacher that you require his/her assistance. To increase accountability, the final examination must be monitored. The exam monitoring form is posted at the top of your course menu. When you complete the course, your teacher will review your work and you will receive a classroom completion certificate (DEC-1) by US mail if all work is satisfactory. You will be notified if any of your work needs to be redone. This certificate will allow you to enroll in a public, private or commercial school behind-the-wheel driver education program. To be eligible for a 180-day temporary license, you will not only need to successfully complete this course but you will also have to: - complete an in-car course and pass a road skills evaluation; - be at least 16 years and 3 months old; - hold your learner's permit for 9 months; and - drive 45 hours with a parent or guardian (15 of which must be after sunset).
How should we deal with it?
The seven steps of Marzano’s Dimensions of Learning: Knowledge. Information or facts Organizing. Comparing, classifying, orderings or representing. Applying. Demonstration prior knowledge within a new situation. Analyzing. Indentifying: Relationships, main ideas, clarifying, errors or fallacies and correcting them. Generating. Inferring, predicting, elaborating. Integrating. Summarizing, restructuring. Evaluating. Establishing criteria, verifying.
