A Human-Centered Vision for Quality Virtual Learning

Human centered vision

This paper presents a vision of quality virtual learning that’s focused not on technology but rather the learning experiences and the people vital to them. It defines “virtual learning” and its potential uses in K-12 education, then explores the components of a quality virtual learning program derived from research and interviews with dozens of experts and practitioners. It acknowledges that not all learning is best accomplished virtually, but it also challenges readers to consider experiences where online approaches may be the best option — or, in some cases, the only equitable one.
