Abstract

This special issue of JTATE comes at a time of rapid growth of K-12 distance education in many parts of the world, especially the USA, where it is known as Virtual Schooling (VS). A growing body of research indicates that we are not prepared to educate educators for this twenty-first century phenomenon that has multiple impacts on the teaching and learning process, teacher education, and the leadership of primary and secondary schools. This editorial by two leaders in this field sets these highly original papers within a global context and the field of teacher education. The papers cover a range of the process of professional development including the raising of awareness, preservice field experience, recruitment of VS and standards for online educators. Many authors call for changes within teacher education.
