Interview with Joe Freidhoff: A Bird's-Eye View of K-12 Online Learning
Pourreau, Leslie
Online Learning, v19 n5 p16-17 Dec 2015
The intent of this article is to introduce long-time "Online Learning" readership to the field of K-12 online learning while also providing direction for the K-12 online learning scholars about where the field is going or should be going in terms of meeting the needs of K-12 stakeholders. Recently an interview was conducted with Dr. Joe Freidhoff, executive director of the Michigan Virtual Learning Research Institute, where he provided his perspective on this ever-changing field. Dr. Freidhoff responded to questions about his background and position at the Michigan Virtual Learning Research Institute; defined the scope of the field; his thoughts on three or four seminal pieces in the field and why they were important to the field; challenges faced by K-12 online learning scholars; where K-12 online learning might be in 20 years; and how research should help shape this vision.
