Learning in the 21st Century: 2009 Trends Update, examines the growing student interest in online learning and how schools are meeting that demand. This report, which is the third in a series of reports published by Project Tomorrow®, a national education nonprofit organization, in collaboration with Blackboard, examines the Speak Up 2008 survey data collected online in Fall 2008 from more than 335,000 K-12 students, teachers, administrators and parents from across the nation.

Through this report you will gain insight, from schools and districts across the nation, about why students and teachers want access to classes online, the current challenges faced by districts with online learning implementations, and how online learning presents unprecedented opportunities for meeting the needs of our 21st century learner.
