EBSCO Alerts

ebscoFirst, I did receive the alert for virtual school this week, but there were no relevant items.

Next, I also received the alert for cyber school, but there were again no relevant items.

Finally, once again I did not receive the alert for K-12 online learning.

So nothing to report this week.

AB- In this paper, we discuss some concerns and recommendations of Saultz and Fusarelli (2017), offering nuanced and detailed views of online schooling from a different perspective. This includes addressing challenges regarding online learning such as fluctuating enrollments, financial concerns, quality assurance, and accountability. In addition, we propose recommendations related to funding, better quality data, and oversight and monitoring. We conclude with a short discussion of the need for differentiated research for specific online learning contexts. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]

AB- In this controversy piece, we portray online learning as growing too fast for existing regulatory structures to oversee and generally as having failed to live up to its potential. Operators, particularly for-profit operators, have generally not produced successful schools. We urge reforms of cyber schooling funding mechanisms, data systems, and oversight.
