Increasing options through eLearning

Having just returned from the eFest in Wellington, I found it interesting to read some of the speaker presentations and white papers from the “No Child Left Behind Leadership Summit” titled Increasing options through eLearning . The conference brought together local, state, and national education leaders in July to explore the concept of virtual education–including distance learning, virtual schools, and other online education courses–and its potential to expand the opportunities for learning any time, any place in support of the No Child Left Behind Act.
Seems many of the same questions are arising in each of these sorts of forums – the role of frameworks, determining quality, virtual schooling, skills for online teaching, privacy & security etc etc.
The Summit Presentations link on the site provides links to al of the white papers and many of the presentations at the Leadership Conference.
