E-Learning 2010: E-Educators Evolving
Bushweller, Kevin, Ed.
Education Week, v30 n4 ps1-s16 Suppl Sep 2010
This special report, the second in a three-part series on e-learning, aims to answer questions related to the growing role of e-educators in K-12 education. It provides perspectives and advice from state policymakers and virtual school providers navigating through the new and often murky policy waters of online-only education, and features insights from e-educators in the trenches of virtual schooling. As the opening story in this report points out, the reality is that many states and national education groups still have not addressed the issue of teacher quality for the online classroom. Many states do require a virtual instructor to be a state-certified teacher, but a majority of states have no endorsement to label an instructor competent in the skills necessary to work in a fully virtual environment. Those that do, or are considering such endorsements, often bill them as a desirable portfolio-builder rather than a required credential. [For Part 1, see EJ908850.]
