Virtual Implementation Support
Wilson Professional Learning at your fingertips.
What is Virtual Implementation Support?
Recognizing that limited time and distance are barriers to in-person sessions for many, Wilson now offers live, interactive support to educators, no matter where they are located. Called Virtual Implementation Support (V.I.S.), this professional learning is geared toward teachers who are new to Fundations® or Just Words®. It provides participants with the programs’ underpinnings and prepares educators with the content, organization, and instructional principles of each daily lesson. V.I.S. is delivered over the course of a school year by an Instructional Development Specialist.
The online format is well-matched to be used by a variety of schools and districts, including rural districts looking for professional learning and large urban districts expanding support to teachers in schools beyond the district’s designated demonstration site with onsite coaching. V.I.S. is designed to support educators after their introductory workshop and during their first year of instruction. This level-specific, online community of practice allows for the time and space needed to deepen skills, learn practical tips, and connect with peers across the country. “We’re looking at the next generation of Wilson® support,” shared Mark Foran, Director of Professional Learning for Virtual Implementation. “This lets us engage with more teachers and impact more students to help them become fluent, independent readers.”
