This panel explores three aspects of how we can best support the increasing numbers of students involved in some form of virtual learning. Archambault et al. report on conversations surrounding accountability specific to K-12 online learning that have taken place amongst education stakeholders in the state of Michigan, and the key recommendations made to inform policy and practice across the state. Borup then reports on one approach to the on-site provision of support for virtual students. He explores the perceptions and experiences of successful on-site mentors, identifying their areas of responsibility, and the implications of his findings for future research and practice. Pratt reports on the development of a framework aimed at helping those working in virtual learning within the New Zealand context. She discusses how the issues these teachers and support staff face are both similar to and different from those involved in virtual learning elsewhere.
