The Bluegrass Institute recently sat down to talk about public education in Kentucky with Billy Harper, who is president of Harper Industries, a Paducah-based construction company.
The institute is releasing a series of seven videos based on our interview with Harper as part of National School Choice Week.
In this second segment, Harper talks about how digital learning can be a tool to help develop strategies that avoid a cookie-cutter approach to education and that help each individual student succeed.
Harper also pointed out how utilizing a hybrid approach of digital learning and face time creates challenges for teachers.
He said it’s important for the education community to keep in mind for all approaches – traditional and digital: “It’s not how much you teach; it’s how much the children learn.”
