Rereading iNACOL policy report that suggests six reasons to close the online learning deal in the handful of states still prohibiting the internet (at least for learning):

  1. Public and available
  2. Academically and demographically blind: flexible and accessible for all students
  3. Engaging: often more engaging than traditional courses (and it will keep getting better)
  4. Social: surprisingly social environment online plus application and extracurriculars
  5. Rigorous: consistently challenging content
  6. Teacher facilitated: more teacher communication than traditional schools
  7. Transformative: pioneering personalized digital learning

The report goes on to outline options that blend online/onsite learning and makes recommendations for state policy makers.
