The Learning Curve

The humanities wing of our new high school is taking shape on the former site of the Center for Technical Education. You can see a color image of this view from six months ago by clicking HERE.

I wonder how soon Quincy will adopt "Distance Learning" whereby students will be able to choose online courses to supplement their curriculum. Maybe the next high school we build will be a Virtual High School, a school sans walls; though personally I don't think there is any substitute for face to face teaching with a quality teacher.

Do you have any thoughts about Virtual High Schools?

Looks like a nice building. Thank you so much for stopping by One Photograph a Day and for your kind words. You are welcome anytime.

A nice play on words for this shot.

Clever title, Slim. I think the stimulation of classmates also enhances the learning experience.

I think virtual classes is a bad idea for kids that age. Like the Notorious C.A.T. just said, the stimulation of classmates also enhances the learning experience.

I think virtual classes could be great for some subjects, but maybe not all. I think it is easier to learn straight from a computer sometimes (like for math or sciences, and even history), rather than have the distraction of other students around, etc... But, for some subjects, you do need human interaction, like in english, foreign languages, music, and the arts.

Winter or Spring?

March has proven to be a fickle month so far.  This pre-school play area illustrates it well.
