Edweek.org has released their newest annual report, Technology Counts 2009: Breaking Away from Tradition, which looks at e-education and opportunities for raising achievement at the K-12 level.

The report indicates that online education is not just being used for advanced students but for struggling students too. On another positive note, the report found that school districts and teachers previously who felt threatened by online education are now embracing the new technologies and ways to hybridize the learning process.

Referencing a report from Sloan-C about K-12 Online Learning, it was shown that the number of K-12 students engaged in online courses in 2007-2008 was up 47% to over 1 million students.

The edweek.org report looks at the changing education environment, key findings from the 2009 State Technology Reports, analyses state-by-state grades and other state data, including use of technology and data access. Read more here.
