Launch of Research Clearinghouse for K-12 Blended and Online Learning

Launch of Research Clearinghouse for K-12 Blended and Online Learning | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

Available at k12onlineresearch.org, the Clearinghouse already houses over 450 references to important research and publications in the field of K-12 blended and online learning. Some references came from the previous work of the Virtual School Clearinghouse, a website initially sponsored by the BellSouth Foundation and later by the AT&T foundation and directed by Dr. Rick Ferdig. Other references have been identified by MVLRI, iNACOL or other project contributors such as the Center for Online Learning and Students with Disabilities. Many, but not all, of the resources have links to full versions of the publications. -

There exists a study, by Nielsen, explaining that children up to 12 years do not understand searching hence research. Therefore, when designing websites for pre teens, we do not include search in functionality
