Abstract: The second edition of The Handbook of Research on K-12 Online and Blended Learning has just been published and is an edited collection of chapters that presents the current state of research in K-12 online and blended learning Updated every three to five years, the Handbook is made up of three sections The beginning chapters lay the groundwork of the historical, international, and political landscape as well as present the scope of research methodologies used Subsequent sections share a synthesis of theoretical and empirical work describing where we have been, what we currently know, and where we hope to go with research in the areas of learning and learners, content domains, teaching, the role of the other, and technological innovations This volume attempts to synthesize existing research; in doing so, it will act as an important resource for those interested in this topic However, there are always new studies, concepts, and domains within K-12 online and blended learning Each section includes potential new areas for growth in understanding practice, policy, and research This symposium will be made up of a panel of the 2018 Handbook authors
