New Systemic Roles Facilitating the Integration of Face-to-Face and Virtual Learning
Furey, Doug; Stevens, Ken
Online Journal of Distance Learning Administration, v11 n4 Win 2008
The introduction of web-based education in Canadian schools, as in other developed countries, has been particularly noticeable in rural areas. Small schools in rural communities have continued to get smaller as families relocate in urban areas in search of increased educational and vocational opportunities. There are a number of issues common to the technological enhancement of rural schools: the building of appropriate infrastructures, the implementation of information and communication technologies and the development of pedagogy for web-based education. In the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador a number of new positions and roles have been created to distribute responsibilities for these issues and to ensure the success of virtual schooling.
