SITE 2014 – Preparing For And Thriving In K-12 Online/Blended Teaching Contexts

This is the sixteenth session  I am blogging from the Society for Information Technology and Teacher Education 2014 conference. The program details for this session were:

Preparing for and Thriving in K-12 Online/Blended Teaching Contexts

Leanna Archambault, Arizona State University, United States
Keryn Pratt, University of Otago, New Zealand
Michael Barbour, Sacred Heart University, United States

Thursday, March 20 11:30 AM-12:30 PM in Grand Ballroom 2

This panel will bring together leading experts to explore the research related to teaching roles in K-12 online and blended learning and the policies influencing teacher preparation for online environments. Currently, there is a dire need for teacher education programs to provide training in online pedagogy and instructional design so all teachers are prepared to teach in breakthrough learning environments. Keryn Pratt will present her work on OtagoNet: One region’s model for virtual schooling in New Zealand and the knowledge and skills teachers need to be successful in this environment. Michael Barbour will focus on roles of online and blended teachers, while Leanna Archambault will examine state-level educational policy pertaining to the preparation of teachers for online and blended settings, offering policy recommendations based on an analysis of existing statutes.

This is another session that I am involved in, so the slides are embedded below.
