Search Alert for “K-12 online learning”

Dear Michael Barbour,

Ricker, G., Belenky, D. & Koziarski, M. (2021). Are Parents Logged in? The Importance of Parent Involvement in K-12 Online Learning. Journal of Online Learning Research, 7(2) 185-201.

Gina Ricker; Daniel Belenky; Mathew Koziarski

Among the many factors that impact student performance in traditional K-12 settings, parent involvement (PI) is consistently identified as critical for student success. However, less is known about parent involvement for full-time virtual schools, where most learning takes place asynchronously in a Learning Management System (LMS). The present study attempts to close this gap by using data from three virtual schools’ LMS to measure the impact of parent involvement on mathematics achievement, across grade bands where PI is known to vary. After controlling for factors known to impact education outcomes, parental involvement – as measured by LMS logins – had a small, but positive, impact on student performance in mathematics across elementary, middle, and high school…

Rice, M., Archambault, L. & Borup, J. (2021). Teachers and Parents as Primary Sources of Support for Children During Remote and Online Instruction. Journal of Online Learning Research, 7(2) 109-112.

Mary Rice; Leanna Archambault; Jered Borup

Teachers and families faced many challenges during this time and the potential for mutual frustration and animosity was great (Rice & Deschaine, 2021). First and foremost, not all families had access to consistent internet service and devices for going online (Flores & Clancy, 2020). While some traditional classroom management concerns abated (e.g., leaving chewing gum on seats in class), engagement with the instructional materials emerged as a pressing problem (Xun et al., 2021). Social and emotional support for teachers, families, and children was also lacking (Miller, 2021). During remote learning, everyone was adjusting to new working norms for jobs, dealing with illness and death, and caring for other children who may or may not have been in school (Alon, et. al…

Budhrani, K., Martin, F., Malabanan, O. & Espiritu, J.L. (2021). How Did Parents Balance It All? Work-From-Home Parents’ Engagement in Academic and Support Roles During Remote Learning. Journal of Online Learning Research, 7(2) 153-184.

Kiran Budhrani; Florence Martin; Oliver Malabanan; Jose Lloyd Espiritu

This study reports the transitional lived experiences of work-from-home parents, uncovering their roles and activities while balancing duties of working, parenting, and assisting children with remote learning. Using a phenomenological approach, a three-step coding process was applied to organize a macro-micro view of parent engagement emerging from ten semi-structured interviews with parents from the Philippines. Parents demonstrated a positive mindset amidst balancing five academic roles including organizing learning, facilitating learning, monitoring learning, motivating learning, nurturing learning, and a sixth role in supporting learning. The role of “supporting learning” was deemed most important and central to the success of other roles…
