Abstract

Educator preparation programs in Georgia received a mandate from the teacher certification governing agency to prepare pre-service teachers to teach online. This represents a change that is needed to keep new teachers equipped to serve the children of this current generation. K-12 education has expanded to include virtual schools. The necessity of online teaching preparation, benefits, student impact, and strategies for the successful implementation of online instruction are presented. This paper discusses how technology use and online instruction were integrated into an educator preparation program. To meet the needs of their future students, teachers must be prepared to integrate technology into their teaching as well as be prepared to teach online.
