Virtual Schooling SIG And SITE 2011

The annual Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education (SITE) International Conference begins today and I wanted to provide an update about the Virtual Schooling SIG.

During the first call for proposals the SIG received a total of 42 submissions and during the second call we received an additional 20 submissions. After we weeded out the proposals that were no related to K-12 online learning, we were left with the following:

Type of proposals Submitted (first round) Accepted (first round) Submitted (second round) Accepted (second round) Submitted (total) Accepted (total)
Full Papers 9 8 1 1 10 9
Brief Papers 6 1 5 3 11 4
Panels 1 1 1 1
Roundtables 1 1
Posters 2 3 1 1 3 4

If you do some math on the table, you’ll see that we actually reviewed 25 proposals (of the 62 that were submitted to the SIG – the others would have been referred to other SIGs).  Of the 25 proposals, 19 of them were accepted.  Taking into account the fact that some folks may have chosen not to come and we may have had some proposals accepted by other SIGs that were later referred to the Virtual Schooling SIG, this is our final program based on the online schedule.

Still a few items that aren’t really K-12 online learning (likely from referrals), but overall a program that I know I am happy with.
