Abstract

This paper presents a framework for addressing the integration of formal and informal education during teacher preparation. Specifically, the narrative addresses the many challenges that arise when implementing the real-world integration of formal and informal education intended to improve students’ academic performance and attitudes during the current e-learning era—to address these concerns, the focus of the discussion is primarily about the benefits obtained from employing an asset-based approach, as opposed to the more traditional needs-based approach, to create an optimal mix of formal and informal education. By employing an asset-based approach that is designed to decrease student resistance, while increasing teacher resourcefulness, the framework presented can help to improve school performance in the contemporary e-learning era.
