Common Problems faced by Students and Teachers
Elearning flexibility is a major draw to college students but K-12 elearning is coming at students providing opportunities and challenges alike. This presentation will look at common problems facing K-12 students and educators.
Student topics:
Digital Divide - Many schools, districts and communities are economically disadvantaged and online access resources are scarce. A survey of schools by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), half of schools and libraries that apply for federal subsidies have “lower speed Internet connectivity than the average American home — despite having, on average, 200 times as many users.” Communities are also behind in funding access points. The presentation will discuss the useage of programs and tech that allow learning to continue offline. 
Motivation and Attitude - Every teacher faces moments when it seems difficult (if not impossible) to engage students. This issue is crucial when we think about the importance of students becoming 21st-century explorers of knowledge. The presentation discussion will focus on risk and rewards of what’s is considered motivation in the online learning world and how attitudes toward online learning are shifting. 
Teaching face to face to hybrid to online – The resounding sound of public education institutions is the clamoring for technology and programs that take teachers and student on a new journey. The presentation will discuss professional development with tech and teaching differentiations from face to face to hybrid to 100 percent online.
