Virtual Learning Environments In Primary Schools

Although the idea of a virtual learning environment (VLE) has been steadily increasing in popularity in recent years, the actual use of VLEs in many educational institutions, especially schools, not really taken. Ofsted blames black enthusiasm and mutual support from teachers and students missing VLE development initiatives, but it may be a greater problem to handle, especially with regard to how few schools adopted VLE as part of the management.

VLEs are designed so that students and staff access to a wide range of educational materials through a special computer systems. Resources commonly found on VLEs, particularly in an environment of universities, including notes and materials, practice tests or exams, PowerPoint presentations, videos and links to useful websites.

Ofsted report on VLEs found that there is still a relatively new concept, which represents only a very small (and in many cases non-existent) aspects of learning. Colleges and universities found that most use of VLEs, while primary schools are lagging far behind.

The biggest problem in primary schools is the lack of "technology champion" - usually a key employee, who gets to deal with the idea, sees benefits and trying to help my colleagues to do the same to what it received in school.

Most VLEs are designed for use on medium or higher education facilities with plenty of storage, complex systems, and timing and rather rounded appearance. It is "off the shelf" VLE solution ideal for primary schools. Moreover, most VLEs priced beyond the reach of the average elementary school because of the extensive features and storage (important for secondary education and higher education, but undesirable price padding for the primary), their interfaces and functions are basically useless for 4 - 11 year olds. What is a VLE that students do not have access?

Elementary school teacher wants to add updates to your VLE already extensive work. Who wants to join the big brands list twice? Make the right elementary school VLE is that it should simplify the work of teachers, and is easily accessible to students and parents. Large buttons, colorful graphics and easy to understand instructions required for younger students. Simple and easy administration, which reduces the amount of work rather than increasing the need for teachers and school admin staff.

Consider the elementary school, Miss Thompson, a class of thirty students. When he wants to set homework for them, and not a simple task, such as spelling exercises, Ms. Thompson has a photocopy of thirty task sheets, pin them to thirty books, tasks, and then trudge over twenty 29 eight books, which returns to failed to return to their work.

Most VLE will also be poor Miss Thompson log in and electronically the same just-in-hand to keep the current system admin. Her workload was increased if not doubled, and new technology, so she is not quite warranted a big fan of it! Worse is that none of her students and their parents bother to look at the SCF because it is too complicated and looks like it was designed for the university, what with all the gray out the button labeled "roadmap" and " practice tests.
