Virtual school trains educators to teach online

Future teachers gain real-world experience through online teaching internships.

The Florida Virtual School is training prospective teachers to better address the needs of online students as part of an internship program that includes seven weeks in virtual schools and seven weeks in traditional schools. "We want to be thinking ahead of where the education industry is now," said Michael Hynes, chairman of the University of Central Florida's Teaching and Learning Principles department. "It will give our students an edge, because they will not only know how to teach a traditional class, they will also know how to do it virtually." eSchool News
