The fourth annual State of the Nation: K-12 Online Learning in Canada report was released by the International Association for K-12 Online Learning in November. The report indicates that distance education at the K-12 level is continuing to grow in Canada and exists at some level in all 13 provinces and territories. However, the growth and level of activity is uneven.
Come hear Michael Barbour, report author, discuss how online learning has evolved over the four years that this study has been conducted. Michael will be joined by a panel of individuals representing K-12 online learning programs from several Canadian provinces to describe how the policies and regulation in their particular province have been implemented at the local level.
