Annotated Bibliography of Canadian K-12 Distance Education Research

This resource is an annotated bibliography of literature that explored K-12 distance education in Canada from 1996 to 2010.  It was created as one of the four goals outlined by the State of the Nation: K-12 Online Learning in Canada study.

  1. provide an overview of the nature of the education system in Canada to provide the necessary background information for a potential international audience,
  2. examine the provincial Government legislation and policies that govern the use of distance education in each province and territory,
  3. include a thorough survey of all of the virtual schools that are currently in operation on a province-by-province basis all across Canada, and
  4. review the literature that explores K-12 e-learning in Canada through the inclusion of an annotated bibliography.

This annotated bibliography was last updated with the last updated with the 2010 State of the Nation: K-12 Online Learning in Canada report.

The newer citations are being included under the “Canada” tag at the Research Clearinghouse for K-12 Online and Blended Learning.
