Dear Michael Barbour,

You have previously requested an automatic alert when new papers were added matching the search “K-12 online learning”

Jackson, B., Jones, W.M., Schad, M. & Strand, D. (2021). Assessing K-12 Online Teachers’ Knowledge of Online Student Identities. Journal of Online Learning Research, 7(1) 35-56.

Brianne Jackson; W. Monty Jones; Michael Schad; Deverick Strand

As the population of K-12 online learners becomes increasingly diverse, research must be undertaken to assess the level of knowledge K-12 online teachers have in terms of meeting this population’s needs. This study explores K-12 online teachers’ perceived knowledge of the identities that may be present in their students and their perceived ability to meet the needs of these students. Using the MAKSS-T instrument, this study finds while K-12 online teachers feel they have a “good” understanding of the possible identities of their students and addressing their needs, they are not confident in their understanding of gender and sexual orientation identities…

Cecil R. Short; Charles R. Graham; Emily Sabey

Several professional organizations, non-profit groups, and researchers have provided K-12 blended teaching competencies; however, few of these have connected competencies to concrete practices. This analysis used a set of research-based blended teaching competencies to analyze a representative sample of 959 artifacts focused on blended teaching practices to uncover the dispositions, technology skills, and competencies that are important to K-12 blended teaching. The analysis uncovered that all dispositions used for coding were important, some technology skills seemed to be more important than others, and some competency areas seemed to be more important than others…

Cunningham, D. (2021). A Case Study of Teachers’ Experiences of Blended Teaching and Learning. Journal of Online Learning Research, 7(1) 57-83.

Diane Cunningham

The purpose of this study was to explore the question, How do teachers experience blended teaching and learning? This article describes the interplay of beliefs and practices of four high school teachers, based on interview data, observation data, and artifact analysis. Results show that the four teachers in the study are enacting their beliefs in the blended context and that their beliefs are consistent across blended and face-to-face domains. Teachers’ views of teaching and learning center on facilitation of active and authentic learning for students and are aligned to school vision. Strategies to remain student-centered vary from teacher to teacher, but an emphasis on formative assessment and feedback is evidenced in the practice of all teachers…

Search Alert for “K-12 online learning”

Dear Michael Barbour,

You have previously requested an automatic alert when new papers were added matching the search “K-12 online learning”

A total of 4 papers have been added:

Elwood, S. (2021). Multifaceted Hero Storytelling for Appreciative Inquiry and Social Emotional Learning through Design Thinking in Informal Learning Environments in Langran, E., Archambault, L. (Eds.), Proceedings of Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference (pp. 335-341).

Susan Elwood

This paper presents multiple theoretical frameworks to better facilitate emergent Hero Journey Stories focusing upon Social Emotional Learning (SEL) constructs with Design Thinking or Journey Maps in an informal learning environment through an Appreciative Inquiry co-design process. The goal of the Service, Teaching, and Research (STaR) collaborative journeys is to uncover fellow faculty members’ sustainable passion projects through shared course learning outcomes toward meaningful and sustainable service projects that integrate technology in outdoor environments. The current model represents reflective refinement from three semesters’ collaborative work.

Starcher, M. (2021). Web-based Instruction Benefits for Students in K-12 in Langran, E., Archambault, L. (Eds.), Proceedings of Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference (pp. 690-696).

Michelle Starcher

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many students and teachers have moved to web-based instruction. As many schools strive to reopen and get students back into the classroom, this study seeks to understand the potential benefits on web-based instruction over traditional face-to-face methods. After reviewing literature related to web-based learning, themes emerged as to the benefits of using web-based instruction in K-12 education. Research indicates that there are many benefits to using web-based instruction to replace and supplement traditional, face-to-face methods of instruction. These benefits include freedom from the confines of time and space, more personalized instruction, accessibility tools, and the adoption of innovative learning tools and strategies…

Askari, E. (2021). “Proud to Be a Citizen Through Technology”: How Students At One High School Think About Digital Citizenship During the Historic Events of 2020-2021 in Langran, E., Archambault, L. (Eds.), Proceedings of Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference (pp. 662-666).

Emilia Askari

This case study explores digital citizenship through the words of students from one high school, who are participating in a year-long research/learning project using social media in civic ways. Responding to calls by scholars of civic education to expand notions of civic engagement and digital citizenship, this study moves beyond old ideas of digital citizenship that focused on teaching students to protect their digital footprints. Rather, this project expands the notion of digital citizenship to include ideas about participating in civic conversations on social media, and monitoring those conversations for misinformation. The study builds on Dutton (2009), which explored notions of the Fifth Estate…

Alsultan, J. (2021). Let’s play! Job-embedded professional development to support science teachers’ transition to virtual technologies to teach the practice of science in Saudi Arabia. in Langran, E., Archambault, L. (Eds.), Proceedings of Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference (pp. 1415-1418).

Jawaher Alsultan

The switch to remote learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic required a rapid and challenging adaptation of technology platforms to improve students learning. Science teachers were suddenly required to teach their classes online with little time and preparation. This breakneck shift to eLearning raised the question of how teachers can provide instruction to their students in the practices of science using virtual technologies. This study investigates an intervention to support Saudi science teachers facing the unprecedented challenge posed by COVID-19 in teaching the practices of science in the virtual school platform, Madrasati, through the engagement in job-embedded professional development…
