ARTICLE

Journal of Research on Technology in Education Volume 38, Number 4, ISSN 1539-1523

Abstract

This review provides a comprehensive examination of the literature surrounding the current state of K-12 distance education. The growth in K-12 distance education follows in the footsteps of expanded learning opportunities at all levels of public education and training in corporate environments. Implementation has been accomplished with a limited research base, often drawing from studies in adult distance education and policies adapted from traditional learning environments. This review of literature provides an overview of the field of distance education with a focus on the research conducted in K-12 distance education environments. (Contains 1 table.)
