A Socio-technological Approach of Addressing Distance Education Issues in Developing and Developed Countries
Md Aktaruzzaman, PhD Monash University

Education is becoming increasingly expensive in developed countries, while in developing countries it is increasingly becoming inaccessible for many socio-economic reasons. The Adapting Structuration Theory In Distance Education model (ASTIDE) is a socio-technological approach for addressing education issues in developing and developed countries that can enable each and every individual in the world to get education or higher education in an affordable way. In particular, it will encourage entrepreneurship through social business and ensure education with minimum financial support from the government.

In this session, Tom Clark and Michael Barbour will describe trends for the future of K-12 distance, online and blended learning highlighted in their recent edited book.

The session will conclude with eight global trends for distance, online and blended learning in schools.
