What is Distance Learning?
Distance Learning is defined as: Learning where the instructor and the students are in physically separate locations. Learning can be either, live or off-line, with or without correspondence between a teacher and student. Correspondence can be done via video or satellite broadcasts, or online over the Internet or through CD-ROMs (computer programs).
Distance Learning has become increasingly popular since the technology has improved over the past few years. For gifted and bright students this is an ideal forum for children to learn at home or away from school. Students may be able to earn credit toward college or for Advanced Placement.
Many Distance Learning programs for gifted students are design specifically for their fast paced learning skills. While many of these programs have designated grade levels, any age student can take any of the courses. The programs designed for the gifted often require eligibility level testing which either they provide or you can provide your own proof of standardize testing results.
