Education Online and Computer eLearning Tools for Special Kids

Special Kids require more teachers and assistants per students to assist them in learning. This is a challenge for school budgets as even the regular classes are often bursting at the seams with regards to student / teacher ratios. Tough choices that, are sometimes made by administrators as the parents of regular kids and of special kids battle it out at PTA Meetings.

"Hey wait a minute; can we have some order here? We are all on the same team! This is about the kids not us." – Superintendent of Public Instruction in a town near you

Why can not we rely more on eLearning, computer tools, virtual reality and online education to assist in crossing the challenges of the teacher / student ratios and maxed out school budgets? My question to educators is what are your thoughts on Self-Esteem and eLearning in special cases?

My thoughts I think are much about the use of Virtual Reality, Avatars -congratulating kids. Do you remember that cool little device "toy" called; Speak and Spell? It congratulated the students when they go the answer right; "You are correct!" And what does the kid do? He or she has a big smile and makes a gesture. Even looks around to see if anyone noticed! Right, sure they do.

Now then if no one is there the student things; Who cares, but if a Virtual Reality Avatar says, "you are doing really good and getting a lot better" then someone is there and that that becomes not only a bonding with the computer, which will be necessary for "trust" and future mutual reliance , But it also builds self esteem.

It seems we need to cross more than the digital divide in eLearning, we need to cross the self-esteem and self-confidence division you see? I certainly hope this article is of interest and that is has propelled thought. The goal is simple; To help you in your quest to be the best in 2007. I thank you for reading my many articles on diverse subjects, which interest you.
