Inclusive Teaching Model

Simulations are based on a model. Our model for teaching practice is rooted in motivation and cognitive sciences and culturally relevant pedagogies.

Why Use New Technologies to Develop Teaching Skills?

Interactions among teachers and students in real classrooms are unique, embedded in context, unpredictable, and constantly changing (Zeichner, 2010). These dynamic conditions create obstacles for developing and measuring growth in specific teaching practices. The opportunity for practice may or may not occur and the amount of repetition and time needed for teacher thinking and reflection is typically not present in the rapid pace of a school day.
