The use of virtual space as a resource to enhance learning is structured quite differently than the plethora of online education programs (digital or virtual schools) currently in place. In an increasing number of states, online education is used to by-pass interdisciplinary, comprehensive, curriculum-based, fact-based education and the Americanization of our children. In many cases, these online schools are a vehicle for corporations to access public education tax dollars for profit, not for students. Think of virtual space as another resource in a teacher’s war chest for effective teaching.
