How are you going to motivate those students than don't do anything on their own?
There are students that won't pay attention or do any work in a school environment. How will they be motivated enough to do their work online?

Motivation is such a loaded word, but accountability is so important. As a teacher, it is important to look every student in the eye - they are in my room collaborating and often will not do as they should because it is so hard to learn to be self disciplined. I agree that it is asking a lot to think all kids are online, however, the characterization of this question of "students as sorry people" turns me off from voting for it.
