iLearn Project partnered with Digital Learning Now! to host a Washington Online Learning Symposium January 11, 2012 in Olympia, Wash. for state policymakers to cover the basics of online learning, Washington’s current policies, and the next steps toward unlocking the full potential of online learning in Washington.
“Digital learning is the future of education,” said iLearn Project Director Diana Moore. “We want to give policymakers the vision and tools to leverage digital learning for increased quality, access, and achievement for every student in Washington.”
Speakers include Tom Vander Ark, author and founder of Getting Smart, Karl Nelson, Director of the Digital Learning Department at the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, and a keynote address by Governor Bob Wise, former Governor of West Virginia, president of the Alliance for Excellent Education, and co-chairman of Digital Learning Now!
