Adding Value to the Digital School
Being NHS president at Orion has allowed me to better understand organizational skills as well as parliamentary procedure.Orion Warrior Chapter
For digital learners, though, it is hard to be a part of the overall NHS experience, which includes convening on both the state and national levels, and to experience that leadership in that venue. So in that sense, NHS doesn't add a lot of value to our school and to our learners. There are arguably lot of opportunities for our learners to engage with their peers in webinars and the like; for our learners, however, webinars are not exactly a new and ideal situation. So, the opportunities that may be there, are not necessarily a good fit for the digital school.
We expect to continue exploring the value-add of NHS and other like organizations. We understand the value of the organization as the learner develops his or her resume and on to college. We will ascertain how this and other organizations purport to add value to digital schools like ours, and we will make better decisions when we lead with that question: How do you add value to what we do?
