Webster County schools have changed a lot in the past 150 years and as technology continues to revolutionize education, schools continue to change. Once, blackboards were made from pine lumber covered with egg whites and charred potatoes. Today, every classroom in the Marshfield R-1 School District has a dry erase board and thanks to Federal Title I funds, an interactive whiteboard also known as “Smart Board.” These allow teachers to project what is on a computer screen in front of the class for students to interact with.

    The internet is still in its infancy and its potential has yet to be fully realized. Having gotten my bachelors and masters the traditional route, I was skeptical about online learning given the obvious differences it has with lecture hall style education modes. This article helped me understand how online learning can be very beneficial for the right crowd: http://educationcareeradvisors.com/resources/detail/6
