Online learning motivation
The popularity and interest in online learning is progressing rapidly. Public schools are facing funding and budget cuts and the possibility that online courses could provide instruction at minimal or lower cost is of interest in my school district. This action research project includes a review of sources that explain how children learn to read and how they learn from technology. The study includes classroom observations of a small group of middle school students in a reading intervention program. The focus of the study is whether or not interactive online learning activities can motivate some unmotivated learners. The major implications of this study indicate that students of this age are motivated by classroom online and face-to-face activities that provide them with independence, choice, flexibility, and supports their individual needs.
