Barbour, M. K. (2010, October). K-12 online learning in South Korea: Lessons for United States jurisdictions. A paper presented at the annual convention of the Association for Educational Communication and Technology, Anaheim, CA.
Over the past fifteen years, the South Korea government implemented three Master Plans beginning with building up the infrastructure to implement information and communications technologies (ICT) in the classroom, followed by the creation of online course content and the training of teachers to use and teach with ICT, then proceeding to implement programs designed to offer K-12 education at a distance. This session will present lessons from this centrally planned initiative for US-based virtual schools.
