The second topic of this meeting is a simple evaluation of the past study year: What aspects will be OK and which need improvement? To support the discussion, a checklist is prepared.
Several organisations have evaluated IT’s use in the online or blended learning study programs organised in the last study year. Teachers, as well as students, were asked to give their opinions about these programs. These studies give an exciting insight into which elements are perceived as necessary by teachers and students.
Below is a summary of the mentioned elements in the evaluation studies. In the last study year, the KUHS has built much experience using IT in education. The KUHS can use the overview to decide how the school would like to proceed with online education or blended learning activities.
For all elements, the KUHS should decide on the element is:
|OK, please continue.||OK, but it needs improvements.|
|Interesting idea; let’s try.||No action.|
