Explore a Virtual Classroom filled with Avatars!

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Visit a simulated classroom that allows students to engage with avatars in a setting to gain real world experience. This interaction method helps future teachers to better understand the principles of learning and teaching.
The simulation is from TeachLive, which is an interactive computer and human-facilitated simulation of a classroom with five avatars that behave as typical elementary, middle, or high school students. Participants will also explore feedback from other adult avatars that behave as parents, teachers or principals. The goal is to help teachers learn how to improve their skills, and to better prepare them to teach real students in a real classroom.
