A Virtual Teacher Can Change a Student’s Life
The National Virtual Teacher Association (NVTA) was created to set a standard for teaching students virtually. Teaching in a virtual environment is not easy – it requires a completely different set of skills from teaching in a normal classroom. We want to help teachers interested in becoming effective virtual educators learn how to instruct students in a virtual environment. Virtual education is growing at an outstanding rate and the NVTA believes that a new standard needs to be set in order to ensure students receive a quality education through this new medium.
Mission and Vision
Mission: Inspire Virtual Teachers to provide excellent instruction.
Vision: A world where virtual teaching is as good as or more effective than in-person instruction.
Each member of the Certification Council responsible for evaluating teachers through the certification process has these minimum requirements:
- Certified Teacher
- 5+ Years teaching in a virtual environment
- Has provided video examples of their own teaching
- 3+ years as a mentor teacher
- Currently employed as a virtual teacher
Built from Virtual Teaching Experience
The NVTA was built by a group of educational leaders that have pioneered the delivery of virtual education in the K-12 and post K-12 spaces. We believe that when a virtual teacher is trained properly, they can create a world-class learning environment that engages students on a medium they live in every day. We believe it’s time to start focusing on how to be an effective virtual teacher by building a community of educators that want to work as a group to create standards and share quality educational options.
