Dear CIDER Member,

We invite you to the March CIDER session. This free, online session will feature Michael Barbour of Touro University Mare Island and Randy LaBonte of CANeLearn, presenting the annual State of the Nation for K-12 e-learning.

Title: State of the Nation: K-12 E-Learning in Canada

The State of the Nation: K-12 E-Learning in Canada report continues to be Canada’s unique benchmark for the expanding use of technology-supported blended and online learning in Canada. This ninth edition of the annual report continues the strong tradition of incisive analysis of the state of K-12 online and blended education in Canada.

Canada continues to have one of the highest per capita student enrolment in online courses and programs of any jurisdiction in the world and was one of the first countries to use the Internet to deliver distance learning courses to students. In many ways Canada provides an interesting exemplar for the rest of the world, due in part to its division into 13 provinces and territories of widely varying population and geography, leading to a wealth of relevant comparisons with other countries/regions of similar population. Canada is also a part of the Commonwealth of Nations, leading naturally to comparisons with other English-speaking countries, but also with Quebec being linked to la Francophonie, leading to relevant role models for two major linguistic regions. And finally, Canada, through its offerings to indigenous communities, provides a role model for other countries for the provision of education to indigenes and minority populations..

When: Wednesday, March 22, 201711am to 12noon Mountain Time (Canada)
