Florida Virtual School (FLVS), the leader in online education, accelerates online and blending learning opportunities for students around the world and creates innovative ways of helping both students and teachers reach their potential through education and development. The best classroom teachers know how to motivate and engage students. However, instructional skill sets and strategies vary from classroom to online teaching. Even veteran teachers need support to make that transition.
As an operating public school funded solely upon successful student completions, FLVS knows the pressure of ensuring student achievement. Our entire collection of instructional tools has been perfected throughout the years to directly benefit your instructional staff. Whether teachers are interested in learning new skills and strategies to use in the classroom or online, we can provide the support they need to motivate and engage students. We offer solutions and customized options to meet teachers' needs through either online courses or face-to-face instruction.
