Article Notice – A Systematic Review Of Research On Online Teaching And Learning From 2009 To 2018

This article is not specifically K-12 focused, but does include some K-12 literature (although it is important to note that it specifically stated only 53 of the 619 articles were K-12 focused).

Computers & Education

Volume 159, December 2020, 104009

A systematic review of research on online teaching and learning from 2009 to 2018

Highlights

Twelve online learning research themes were identified in 2009–2018.
A framework with learner, course and instructor, and organizational levels was used.
Online learner characteristics and engagement were the mostly examined themes.
The majority of the studies used quantitative research methods and in higher education.
There is a need for more research on organization level topics.

Abstract

Systematic reviews were conducted in the nineties and early 2000’s on online learning research. However, there is no review examining the broader aspect of research themes in online learning in the last decade. This systematic review addresses this gap by examining 619 research articles on online learning published in twelve journals in the last decade. These studies were examined for publication trends and patterns, research themes, research methods, and research settings and compared with the research themes from the previous decades. While there has been a slight decrease in the number of studies on online learning in 2015 and 2016, it has then continued to increase in 2017 and 2018. The majority of the studies were quantitative in nature and were examined in higher education. Online learning research was categorized into twelve themes and a framework across learner, course and instructor, and organizational levels was developed. Online learner characteristics and online engagement were examined in a high number of studies and were consistent with three of the prior systematic reviews. However, there is still a need for more research on organization level topics such as leadership, policy, and management and access, culture, equity, inclusion, and ethics and also on online instructor characteristics.

Article Notice – Misbehaving Toddler Or Moody Teenager: Examining The Maturity Of The Field Of K-12 Online Learning

I wanted to bring attention to this article from yesterday’s [red] New Notification From Distance Education Journal.

Misbehaving Toddler or Moody Teenager: Examining the Maturity of the Field of K-12 Online Learning

Niños o adolescentes con mal comportamiento: Examinando la madurez del campo del aprendizaje en línea K-12

Abstract: Depending on the reference, the practice of K-12 online learning began sometime between 1991 and 1996. Yet almost three decades later, there is still little research to describe the K-12 online learning student experience, which has resulted in a lack of understanding of the actual instructional model, nature of the curriculum, and type and amount of support employed by K-12 online learning programs. Further, much of the available research is atheoretical, methodologically questionable, contextually limited, and overgeneralized. All these factors make the K-12 online learning research that does exist of little value in guiding practice. This manuscript examines the maturity of research in the field of K-12 online learning, with the goal of providing researchers with meaningful impact on future practice.

Keywords: Misbehaving Toddler, Moody Teenager, K-12, Online Learning

Resumen: Dependiendo de la referencia, la práctica del aprendizaje en línea de K-12 comenzó en algún momento entre 1991 y 1996. Sin embargo, casi tres décadas después, todavía hay poca investigación para describir la experiencia de los estudiantes de aprendizaje enlínea de K-12, que ha resultado en una falta de comprensión del modelo de instrucción real, la naturaleza del plan de estudios y el tipo y la cantidad de apoyo empleado por los programas de aprendizaje en línea K-12. Además, gran parte de la investigación disponible es teórica, metodológicamente cuestionable, contextualmente limitada y sobregeneralizada. Todos estos factores hacen que la investigación de aprendizaje en línea K-12 que existe sea de poco valor para guiar la práctica. Este manuscrito examina la madurez de la investigación en el campo del aprendizaje en línea en K-12, con el objetivo de proporcionar a los investigadores un impacto significativo en la práctica futura.

Palabras clave: Niño con mal comportamiento, Adolescente con mal comportamiento, K-12, Aprendizaje en línea.

Article Notice – A Qualitative Inquiry Of K–12 Teachers’ Experience With Open Educational Practices: Perceived Benefits And Barriers Of Implementing Open Educational Resources

I wanted to bring attention to a second article from yesterday’s [IRRODL] New Notification From The International Review Of Research In Open And Distributed Learning.

A Qualitative Inquiry of K–12 Teachers’ Experience with Open Educational Practices: Perceived Benefits and Barriers of Implementing Open Educational Resources

  • Hengtao TangPenn State
Keywords: open educational resources, open educational practices, k-12, teachers, barriers, benefits, qualitative inquiry

Abstract

Teachers in K–12 schools have shown an increasing desire for open educational resources (OER) to ensure all students can learn effectively. OER provide teachers with free access to open-licensed educational resources that they can retain, reuse, revise, remix, and redistribute for personalized instruction. Open educational practices (OEP) have been considered a pathway to reinforce the acceptance and readiness of K–12 teachers to use OER. This research thus showcases a qualitative study that investigates teachers’ experiences with OEP. This research explains K-12 teachers’ perceived benefits of implementing OER and also discusses their perceived barriers hindering OER usage in K–12 settings. The study also discusses the practical implications of integrating OER in K–12 curriculum.
