Webinars at Louisiana Virtual School
Grant, Allen
Principal Leadership, v9 n9 p64-66 May 2009
Delivering meaningful professional development, engaging students in exciting yet practical curricula, and effectively communicating with faculty and staff members are challenges in any school setting. At the Louisiana Virtual School, a state-funded virtual school run by the Louisiana Department of Education, the 6,000 students, 115 instructors, and 450 site facilitators are spread across 300 schools in 72 districts. Webinars play a vital role in the school's ability to meet the challenges of educating students and facilitating staff development. Although Louisiana Virtual has successfully begun the integration of webinar technologies, much work remains. Future challenges include developing innovative curricula that use webinar technologies and expanding professional development so that course instructors have the skills to deliver the new curriculum. Fortunately for the students of Louisiana, webinar technologies make it easier for school administrators to meet these challenges. The webinar products used at Louisiana Virtual are described. Several tips for conducting a great webinar are also presented.
