Chris Evert Keynotes Graduation Ceremony for K12 International Academy Class of 2014

Tennis pro lauds online school graduates in virtual live-streamed ceremony

HERNDON, Va., July 3, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ – K12 International Academy, an accredited, online private school open to students in grades K-12 worldwide, honored its graduates during a 2014 ceremony that occurred last Friday, June 27. Unlike traditional graduation ceremonies, this one took place virtually and was live-streamed from K12's headquarters in Herndon, Va. The keynote speech was provided by renown tennis player Chris Evert. More than 130 students were honored for their scholastic achievement and awarded their diplomas during the live-streamed event.

Students and families who logged in early were greeted with a prelude of student artwork and music, until commencement began at 11 a.m. At that time the ceremony kicked off with the Pledge of Allegiance, led by Lt. Colonel White, a recently retired United States Air Force pilot and the father of K12 student Madeline White.

Succeeding Lt. Colonel White was his daughter, Madeline White, who led her class in the National Anthem. A top student, Madeline enrolled at K12 during its first year as a curriculum provider. Madeline and K12 began their educational journey together, and now many years later, Madeline says she is happy to have received such an incredible education, which has given her the flexibility to pursue her numerous outside interests. While enrolled at K12 International Academy, Madeline participated in a partnership between the school and University of Maryland University College, which allowed her to earn multiple credits toward her higher education. This fall, she will be attending the College of William and Mary, where she hopes to study International Relations and participate in a study abroad program at St. Andrews University in Scotland.

Keynote speaker Chris Evert addressed students and their families during the online ceremony. The winner of 18 Grand Slam titles and former No. 1 player in the world, Evert made her mark as one of the premiere women athletes of all time at a very young age. Voted the AP “Female Athlete of the Year” on four occasions and the recipient of numerous other awards, Evert was inducted, unanimously, into the Tennis Hall of Fame in 1995. She has also been rated No. 50 among all North American Athletes of the 20th century by a worldwide vote of sports journalists. Since retiring from the courts in 1989, Evert has devoted her time to her family, her charity, which has raised over $22 million for at-risk women and children, and the Evert Tennis Academy in Boca Raton, Florida.

Do Hee Kim, Valedictorian of the Class of 2014, and Olivia Konen, Salutatorian of this year's graduating class, were honored during an awards presentation by Miriam Rube, Head of School at K12 International Academy.

The ceremony culminated with the presentation of diplomas and closing remarks Rube. “We are those who built the bridge. We are those who mend the cracks that wear with age. You are charged with reaching a goal beyond the trespass. You learned with no walls and no bells. You established relationships with no borders. If the world would act upon your example of study, peace would be more readily attainable.”

While the accomplishment of a high school diploma is an achievement in itself, the vast majority of students from the K12 International Academy Class of 2014 have chosen to take their studies to the next level. This year's graduating class has been accepted to more than 100 colleges and universities, including College of William and Mary, Arts Educational Schools London, Loyola University, Drexel University, Emerson College, Hofstra University, University of Pittsburgh, Louisiana Tech University, United States Naval Academy, Trinity University, University of Edinburgh, Pepperdine University, McGill University and more. Combined, the Class of 2014 earned $709,715 in scholarships for the 2014-2015 school year.

“K12 International Academy is home to a diverse population of students spanning the globe. Students interact and develop relationships with their peers around the world with varied interests and talents. Class Connects, Virtual Field Trips, clubs, and College Counseling sessions are only a few examples of where these connections are made and established for our students, their teaches and academic coaches,” said Rube. “With shared experiences their differences are celebrated and they find common ground in their future plans and life goals. The atmosphere we create aligns with the mission of K12 and the International Academy as we are committed to bringing individualized learning to all kinds of minds, and removing barriers that keep children from reaching their true potential. This global perspective will hopefully translate in their lives after graduation, as they meet and interact with others around the world.”

K12 International Academy educators provide the individualized learning tools students need including instruction, guidance, and support, and they regularly interact with students and parents via e-mail, web-based classrooms, online discussions, phone, and face-to-face meetings. “Our approach is to implement best practices in teaching focused on student learning and outcomes that move children forward,” said Rube. “Well beyond students' graduation, our faculty and support staff are committed to serving as guides to a lifetime of learning.”

K12 International Academy The K12 International Academy from K12 Inc. LRN +0.17% , the nation's largest provider of proprietary curriculum and online education programs, is an accredited private online school with an individualized approach to learning that frees children to reach their full potential.

“Brick and mortar schools will still exist, and the overwhelming majority of children will attend them, but the schools will be center of individualized learning, with engaging interactive content rather than a series of chalk-and-textbook, grade-delineated classrooms. At high school and potentially middle school, each child will have a computer to work at his or her own pace in customized programs; technology will deliver it to them in ways best suited to their individual needs and strengths.”

Is this scenario science fiction? Can this type of set up ever happen? And if it did, would it even improve quality? What then would be the role of our teachers in managing these disruptive changes?

Ron Packard addresses these important questions in his recent book Education Transformation. In particular, he highlights the specific ways in which technology can provide meaningful educational alternatives, especially for lower-income students in communities with struggling schools.

While Packard writes about the US, his arguments also hold true in Latin America. As he said to me in a recent interview, “In South America, online education could leapfrog brick-and-mortar schools in many remote places where building infrastructure is more expensive.”

Indeed, expanded online education could help thousands of schools in the region where children of different ages often study together due to lack of teachers and other resources. The personalization of content that it allows could make a big difference in allowing each student to progress at his or her level, and it can be distributed at a low marginal cost. This can impact the students who drop out of school, the athlete that can’t make regular school hours, the bored but gifted child, and the kids with special needs of all types. They can all study – and advance – at their own rhythm.

Nor is the use of such technologies foreign to this generation. “Kids in even the poorest countries have smart phones now,” as Packard argues. “The US has long been ahead but I think that’s changing pretty rapidly.”

But while education is one of the largest sectors of Latin America’s economies, these technologies haven’t yet had the impact one might expect. As with health care and other public services, education lags behind sectors like manufacturing, services, and consumer goods in adapting to and taking advantage of the productivity gains and disruptive effects of the “knowledge society”.

It is ironic – and troubling – that those technological advances haven’t permeated the one sector that is most crucial to preparing our citizens for the challenges and opportunities of this knowledge society.

As Packard says, “Schools have not adequately incorporated the advances in how technology can deliver information, communicate, respond and shape learning. The ineffective use of technology has left education behind in the enormous productivity gains the economy has achieved over the past twenty to twenty five years.”

But Packard offers more than an analysis of the problem – for over a decade he has been successfully implementing his ideas in the real world as CEO and founder of K12, the largest online education provider in the US. Founded in 1999, K12 has worked with more than 2,000 school districts, and is used by students in all 50 US states and 70 countries. The company has poured more than $320 million into its curriculums and programs. Despite at times heavy criticism from political opponents as well as some investors, Packard has persisted, proving that a for-profit company can apply innovation to education.

Nor is he a stranger to Latin America, having lived three years in Chile, and having traveled to almost every country in the region. K12 serves thousands of students in Latin American schools, which utilize its programs to complement their curriculums. He foresees an expanding role for online education in the region.

And the Chilean entrepreneur Carlos Ortiz, a pioneer in education technology and founder of KalaKai, agrees with him. Ortiz says that “technology is changing how we teach. The biggest opportunity it gives us is to recognize the diversity of learning styles, and put the student back at the center of teaching and learning. In this sense, technology is a catalyst for the democratization of education.”

A number of other innovators, both from the non-profit and the for-profit sectors, agree with this vision and are offering new models of education to students and teachers in Latin America. There is Educabilia, Educatina, and many other online services offering content for students and parents. Mexico’s Carlos Slim Foundation, for example, has partnered with the online Khan Academy to provide its content in Spanish.

All of this has led Packard to the conclusion that “Our school system won’t work the way it should until we can offer different choice so that a child can find the education that is right for them.” In this light, online education is just one more option to be considered among many. While it may not be the best for everyone, it is clear that the “one-size-fits-all” approach that currently predominates is no longer an option if we want our children to be prepared for the 21st century.
