The demand for online education is rapidly growing and FLVS' clinical experiences program is the most innovative program in existence, which is able to meet that demand. There is no other place where education majors can be fully immersed in an online classroom and receive such high quality preparation.
According to iNACOL annual review of policy in practice in 2012:
“The total number of students taking part in [online and blended learning] is... likely several million, or slightly more than 5% of the total K-12 student population across the United States.”
Faced with the rapid growth of online education, FLVS, the leader in online learning, realized its professional obligation and decided to open its doors in an effort to help preservice candidates prepare for the 21st century classroom.
In spring 2009, FLVS established its first university partnership with the University of Central Florida. What began as a small seven-week pilot with six junior level interns has developed into an open-access field experience available to junior, senior and graduate level interns.
FLVS offers over 150 courses across the 6-12th grade curriculum and has over 400 state certified clinical educators. FLVS’ University Partnerships offers a wide variety of opportunities from hosting education majors for a virtual classroom observation, a school counseling internship to a fully immersed clinical experience.
