BOLT is a fully online program for graduate and selected undergraduate students that answers the Obama administration's call to improve digital learning in elementary and secondary education. Four fully online courses provide current and future teachers, administrators, and school counselors with advanced knowledge, skills, and competencies that are necessary for effective K-12 e-learning and e-teaching. Growing trends in online and blended education, ever-changing technologies, and new innovative and engaging instructional strategies for modern learners require educators to have new knowledge and skills. America's education system is transforming rapidly, so be one of the first to become a successful online teacher!
Accredited regionally through the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
Asynchronous courses with occasional synchronous videoconferences and guest speaker presentations.
If a student takes EDG5073 and EDG5074 in summer, EDG 5075 in fall, and EDG5076 in spring it will take 3 semesters. Cohorts start every summer semester
K-12 educators and administrators who successfully complete BOLT courses will be able to design, develop, deliver, and evaluate online and blended instruction effectively.
These courses may not be offered every semester.
All BOLT students need to be fingerprinted and pass a background check to participate in activities with Florida Virtual School as part of the program requirements. Students need to acquire a GPA 3.0 for all BOLT courses and all courses need to be completed within 3 years.
