Review of KC Distance Learning Website

My kids are part of what is being called the iGeneration - what that means is that they have not lived during a time when there wasn't an internet, computers, cell phones, etc.  Many schools and parents are looking for ways to reach these eLearners and to match how they naturally learn, in order to provide them with the best education possible.  But, how to do that?

One way is through online classes. On-line classes are one way to give middle and high school studentsnew options to learn using preferred tools in a familiar environment, and even experience enhanced, one-on-one relationships with educators. Whether they're in need of more assistance, looking for wider range of classes or simply prefer to learn in a medium that they have grown up with, online learning can be a great way to fit your child's needs.

Two of my older boys have taken on-line classes for high school, and have loved them!  My oldest was able to work at his own pace, graduating two years early, and is now attending the University of Nevada, Reno.  My younger son will be starting his Freshman year, and all of his classes will be on-line.  My boys are not the only ones taking advantage of on-line classes, in fact, today there are 1 million children learning online, either part time, full time or between school terms. Additionally, more than 20 percent of schools and educational institutions around the country offer online classes today, and that number should grow by another 30 percent within a couple of years, according to industry research.

From the home-schooled family, the student brushing up on skills to compete at the next level or the child facing challenges in traditional schools such as bullying, KCDL provides academic solutions to fit your child's needs.
