Have you used the services of this growing international partnership-based online provider?
I sat down last night toÂ think about what my Wednesday post was going to be about. As soon as I sat down,Â a commercial came on TV forÂ K12.com, a provider ofÂ “online public school” for grades K to 12. It wasn't immediately clearÂ what facts supportÂ the “largest” claim, but they certainly appear to be doing this onÂ a national and international scale. IÂ just had toÂ check them out further.
Their home page says that they provide “individualized learning customized to each child's needs”, using an award-winning curriculum that engages studentsÂ with a rich combination of online interactive and offline hands-on learning. I clicked on Find a School and then on my state, NY, and learned that they don't have offerings here yet (my understanding is that we're one a small number of remaining states that don't permit online education at the K-12 levelÂ yet, but they didn't mention that). They are partnered with 28 states and 38 countries. This pageÂ explains the different types of partnerships they have -Â public, private, and “blended” learningÂ formats. Their course offerings are grouped into K – 8, High School, and Summer School, and they also offer Supplemental Education.
I was quickly impresssed with the breadth and inclusiveness ofÂ the offerings, with their passion, andÂ withÂ theÂ richness of their web site. Don't just take my word for it, click on over to K12.com and learn some more if this interests you like it did me! They also have a subsite designedÂ specifically for educational administrators.
If you're already aware of these folks and have anything you can share with us about your impression or your experiences with them, we'd love to hear more about it (click here to comment)!
