SITE: K-12 Online Learning SIG

SITEIn August 2009, the Society for Information Technology and Teacher Education (SITE) approved a Virtual Schooling Special Interest Group (SIG), which was renamed in 2015 to the K-12 Online Learning SIG, to their current list of SIGs. As it is described on the website:

The use of distance education, particularly online learning, at the K-12 level is growing dramatically. There is significant K-12 online learning activity in 44 states, along with international virtual schooling initiatives in Australia, Canada, China, Finland, Iran, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Singapore, Turkey, and the United Kingdom (and likely others).

The K-12 Online Learning SIG will take an international focus on the growth of this form of distance education at the K-12 level. This focus may include issues related to the design and delivery of programs, the models used to organized virtual school opportunities, the nature of virtual school students, and the preparation of teachers for the virtual school environment to name but a few areas.

The duties of the K-12 Online Learning SIG include:

If you are a member of SITE or the Association for the Advancement of Computing in Education (AACE) and are interested in becoming a member of the K-12 Online Learning SIG of SITE, please e-mail:

Chair: Kathryn Kennedy

Associate Chair: Jered Borup
