What the author has learned from this experience is to allow time for the unexpected when dealing with technology. She has further learned that one needs a strong technological support system in the school to ensure that access can be restored. The physical setting for online learning is important, as well. Students need to have a place where they can respond to their learning. The regular classroom would not be the most appropriate environment for this type of independent study program. Funding must also be considered when dealing with distance learning programs. Finally, the small print the kind that reads “System Requirements” will always be the first piece of information she reviews before considering any type of technology program for her students! The use of distance learning in an elementary setting has truly just begun. She realizes now how important it is for educators to have a full understanding of what is available for their students through the use of technology and, more importantly, how to access what is available. Professional development regarding technology in the field is only in the infant stages. Teachers, need to find the time and resources to become proficient in this vast field. Her professional development plan will always include goals on how to improve her knowledge in this area. To ensure that students are provided with everything they deserve in an educational setting, it is a teachers’ responsibility to pursue and move forward with their own learning in this vast virtual realm that provides such rich possibilities for exploration.
