Projects

In addition to the State of the Nation: K-12 E-Learning in Canada research initiative, CANeLearn is also involved in a number of individual research projects.

Leading English Education and Resource Network (LEARN), a non-profit organization that primarily serves the public and private Anglophone, Aboriginal, Youth and Adult Education sectors of Québec, requested a brief on the current practice in the use of digital technology in formative and summative evaluation. The brief focused on issues and challenges faced when implementing a program where digital technology replaces traditional pen and paper evaluation. This brief provided a synthesis of the research conducted for the review. Scope of the research included hardware, software and cloud-based assessment solutions, practices and policy related to evaluation and digital technology.

The British Columbia Teachers Federation requested a report that explores written provisions for the working conditions of K-12 distance education and online learning teachers in Canada (i.e.,  generally referred to as distributed learning throughout the report).  The authors describe that there are actually few distributed learning regulations that go beyond what would be expected for traditional brick-and-mortar education.  Further, these unique aspects are reflective of stakeholders’ efforts to examine what constitutes the equivalent experiences for teaching in the distributed learning environment relative to traditional classroom teaching.

Further, CANeLearn assumed ownership of one legacy research initiative:

This resource is an annotated bibliography of literature that explores K-12 distance education in Canada from 1996 to 2010.  It was created as a part of the 2010 State of the Nation: K-12 E-Learning in Canada study.  The newer citations are included under the “Canada” tag at the Research Clearinghouse for K-12 Online and Blended Learning.
