Watch the webinar
In this webinar, Dr Julie Cohen talks about the possible value of simulated classrooms for instruction and research, detailing the implications for teacher preparation design.
She will also highlight experiments that examine how teaching skills improve in simulated classrooms, depending on the coaching that prospective teachers receive.
To avoid the trap of technology for technology’s sake, it is necessary to research how these technologies are used. It it also important to look at how the technology supports the goals of improving teaching in real classrooms with real children.
