Abstract

The current study examines a popular in-class activity called “Renew-A-Bead,” which has been modified from a variety of online sources (see Powers, et al., 2013). It was adapted for a virtual environment by creating an online simulation that preservice teachers could use to learn about renewable energy. The simulation was piloted with a small group of students who overwhelmingly saw the affordances of completing the activity online. Implications include methods for creating authentic activities in a virtual platform that maintain specific learning outcomes and that can also be used in their future K-8 classrooms.
