New Approach to Online Learning Discussed at the Bridgeport Conference Center

Posted: Updated:

Representatives from the State Department of Education met with West Virginia University Academic Innovation at the Bridgeport Conference Center on Wednesday to discuss online learning.

The group included math teachers from all over the state who discussed ways to teach new math courses that are required by the state.

They're also working on an online program to allow 24 hour access to students and teachers.

"The students go and use some resources at home and the teachers assign it outside of the classroom. They can create what's called a flip classroom, where they are learning a lot of the lecture portion of the course outside of the class and then when they come in they can do a lot more of the hands on, in depth type learning," said Greg Strimel, the K-12 Coordinator for WVU Academic Innovation.

The new website will have parts of it, including Math I, ready to go by summer.

The conference will continue on Thursday with the teachers and representatives continuing to work on these new courses and systems.
