His remarks will focus on how blended learning—online and site-based learning—could dramatically reshape how community-based organizations partner with schools and parents.

The summit will explain trends in policy and practice of online and blended learning and virtual schools in K-12 education. It also will help clarify some of the most pressing issues and explore topics in current events. The panel will develop a common understanding of what is meant by online and blended learning by showing the diversity of approaches to online learning, such as state virtual schools, full-time charters, district programs, blended learning, and after school programs.
