Taking Flight: Working to Increase Focus on K-12 Online and Blended Learning in International Contexts
AbstractIn the current issue, we are introducing a special international section. Since JOLR’s formation in 2014, the journal has sought to be more inclusive of international authors and contexts, recognizing that the field of K-12 online and blended learning goes way beyond the United States. We seek to publish and share what the broader global community has to share. With this international section, we begin a more concerted effort to recruit manuscripts that focus on international contexts. Our hope is that through a special section that will feature international research in blended on online settings, we will make progress toward our aim. For our general section, we see a growing number of articles focused on various aspects of blended learning environments. We hope that these articles are useful and relevant to your own work related to online and blended learning. As we enter our fifth year, we are so thankful to the growing world-wide community of researchers and practitioners in our field, and welcome new members and their contributions. It is through such a supportive community that our burgeoning journal has taken flight. We invite you to consider JOLR as a potential publication outlet for your related research.
