Demonstration of TLE TeachLivETM (TeachLive.org)

The TLE TeachLivE™ Lab is a mixed-reality teaching environment supporting teacher practice in classroom management, pedagogy, and content. The TLE TeachLivE™ Lab, developed at the University of Central Florida, is currently being used at over 85 campuses in the United States and growing to include multiple school districts and international partners. Each partner utilizes the TLE TeachLivE™ Lab in a unique manner depending on the needs of their students, teachers, professors, and community stakeholders. The TLE TeachLivE™ Lab provides pre-service and in-service teachers the opportunity to learn new skills and to craft their practice without placing “real” students at risk during the learning process. Come see a demonstration and find out how one California teacher preparation program is using TeachLive in coursework and field experiences. Conducted by Sally Spencer (California State University, Northridge) & Amanda Schramling  (Los Angeles Unified School District).
