A Theory Before Its Time
Self-Instruction becomes Distance Learning
Visionary educators Frederic
Burk and Mary Ward
clearly determined and
theorized that the educational paridigms of their day were limited and
A parallel can be drawn between their experience and that of Leonardo
da Vinci -- he theorized
flight, even eloquently drafted the mechanical definition, but the
to bring the concept to fruition did not exist.
Computers, local networks, the internet, graphics, interactivity,
have brought proof of Burke's and Ward's theories.
In these pages I have sought to not only prove that point, but to
gather useful and creative
websites which demonstrate my point, and provide a set of resources
for education today.
I greatly enjoyed putting this presentation together, and
hyperlinking the content for
ease of use and reference.
Please enjoy your visit.
