Abstract

New advances in a teacher simulation (simSchool 2.0) allow teacher educators to teach a variety of topics in a simulated teaching environment offering the opportunity to experience a range of learners with different needs. Research findings from new modules created to focus on diverse learners, differentiated instruction, classroom management, and new content are included in this paper. Findings included multiple universities and show significant pre-post increases in these areas of focus. New advances in the simSchool program allow a broader community of stakeholders to participate in the simSchool community to help identify potential bias and provide a completely safe exploratory space for gaining exposure to diversity.
