This week in class week learned about Open Courseware (OCW). I believe that this will open up many oppotunities for learning. I found some more information on this at http://www.ocwconsortium.org/aboutus/whatisocw
I think this will benefit children that are being homeschooled or people that like to learn online. However, I do believe that a classroom setting helps children learn and is essential to the learning process. Depending on the learning style of your child, whether she/he is a self starter, hands-on, or a book worm will determine how much the OCW will help with learning.
