EDTECH597 – List Entry: Research Into Student Performance In Full-Time K-12 Online Learning

As I mentioned in the EDTECH597 – Week 4 entry for my EDTECH597 – Blogging In The Classroom course, I wanted to post a sample of a list entry.

This is a thematic list entry that lists the various research into student performance in full-time K-12 online learning (most often in the form of cyber charter schooling).

Note that the vast majority of these citations have found that students in full-time K-12 online learning environments do worse than students in the traditional brick-and-mortar school environment.
