New York to Require Online Component for State Schools

New York schools might see more online components to their classes based on the new policy passed by the Board of Regents.

July 18, 2011 - PRLog -- The Board of Regents in charge of New York state schools recently approved a new policy that removes barriers to online curriculum and provides a mandate for online education in the State of New York.  This move comes at a time when educators all over the country are facing increased pressure to integrate a digital curriculum and keep up with education worldwide.

On July 5th of this year, S. Korea unveiled a massive plan to completely convert to a digital curriculum.  The move spurred furious debate as to the direction education is going, and whether or not the United States I capable of keeping up with the curve.  Now, New York policy makers moved to provide room for increased online curriculum cross-school.

One of the many benefits of a virtual classroom is the ability for students to interact with their teachers and fellow students and gain access to classroom information from anywhere, anytime.  In the case of New York, schools can now host classes for students in other schools.  For example, if one school does not have the funds available to provide staffing for a Mandarin language class, their students can simply join a class using another school's teaching staff and curriculum online.

With funding for education still underwhelming, the decision to adopt virtual classrooms can help New York schools save money on staffing and other curriculum related services.  Some concerns have arisen as to the cost of implementing a virtual classroom for all New York state schools, but there are many options available to help stem the cost of this kind of integration.

“We provide our integrated SIS/LMS service free of charge to all public, private, and charter schools in the United States,” said a representative from Novachi, an education technology company that provides free Student Information and Learning Management systems, “Using technology like ours, the State of New York could implement their developmental plans way ahead of schedule, as the infrastructure to complete such a project is already available thru Novachi.”
