Abstract

This paper will describe the Sim-school project © and present data on its effectiveness with preservice teachers. The project consists of a virtual school district through which preservice teachers become faculty members in a K-12 low-income diverse school. The simulation provides our preservice teachers with the opportunity to contextualize curricular decisions in a simulation that approximates life in the classroom and school. The project has lead to preservice teachers' increased knowledge and understanding of diverse perspectives, improved computer efficacy, and teacher efficacy.
