Barbour, M. K., Unger, K., & Toker, S. (2010, October). Career Forward: A course for meeting the K-12 online learning requirement. A paper presented at the annual convention of the Association for Educational Communication and Technology, Anaheim, CA.
In 2006 Michigan became the first jurisdiction in the United States to require students to have an online learning experience in order to graduate from high school. In response to this legislation, the Michigan Virtual School created a career planning course entitled CareerForward and made it available to schools free of charge to allow them to meet the new online learning requirement. This session will describe the CareerFoward course and content, discuss the data collected, and identify specific suggestions for the implementation of CareerForward in schools as a way to meet the states’ online learning graduation requirement.
