Abstract

Many involved with the practice or study of K-12 online and blended learning are familiar with the American context. It surrounds us in the media and published research. However, online and blended learning is occurring in meaningful ways to address specific K-12 student needs all around the globe. There are several areas where there are some key differences internationally (e.g., the prevalence of legacy forms of distance education, a lack of neo-liberal proponents, a lack of online learning below the secondary level, and blended learning being seen as a form of technology integration).
