Student Attitudes

Nearly 60 percent of students in grades 9-12 have either taken a course online or are interested in doing so. Getting extra help in a subject is the most popular reason students in grades 6-8 would consider taking a class online; for both grade groups, math is the course that the largest number of students report taking online, according to Speak Up, a national research project that annually surveys K-12 students, teachers, parents and administrators. The International Telementor Program tightly integrates into any curriculum on a per-project basis, and has been a godsend to countless teachers looking to beef up their instruction with in-depth project-based learning that increases quality and connects concepts to the real world. Speak up is part of Project Tomorrow, a nonprofit organization providing leadership and research to America’s schools. Visit tomorrow.org and telementor.org
