MEDIA: Covering Online Ed Is Where It's At, Says EWA Editor

Nerds.jpg EWA editor Linda Perlstein says that online education the next big thing for education journalists to cover:

"If you want to know what’s going on in schools, get into the classroom. But if you want to understand one of the fastest growing trends in American education, here’s a new imperative: Sit in front of the computer."

Perlstein recommends taking an online course to see how it feels.  Having written about online education, I'd say that spending time with the teachers who support  online classes -- or the computer centers where kids take online classes -- is a better way to go.  But there's lots of good information and ideas in the piece.  Check it out (EWA News).
