International Association for K-12 Online Learning
This report studies the best practices necessary to rethink the skills, methods, and pedagogical evolution that teacher education must address. If we are to ensure great teachers are trained, mentored, and retained for our students--the programs themselves must emulate 21st century skills. The examples found in this report have unique elements and frameworks that others may learn from and replicate. The partnerships highlighted in this report provide guideposts to rethinking and modernizing educator preparation programs for today's schools. Following a foreword by Susan Patrick, President and CEO of International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL), and an introduction by Kathryn Kennedy, Director of Research of iNACOL, this report contains the following contributions: (1) Boise State University and Idaho Digital Learning Academy (Kerry Rice and Dazhi Yang); (2) Florida State University and Florida Virtual School (Dina Vyortkina); (3) Wayne State University (Michael Barbour); (4) Arizona State University and Florence Virtual Academy (Leanna Archambault); (5) Mount Vernon Nazarene University and TRECA Digital Academy (Dean Goon); (6) University of Central Florida and Florida Virtual School (Michael Hynes, Bryan Zugelder, and Janet Zajac); (7) Utah State University and Utah Virtual Academy (Robin Parent); and (8) Conclusion (Leanna Archambault).
