Increase Student Achievement and Engagement in Your Classroom with Simulations

May 19, 2020 ♦ 7:00pm - 8:30pm ET

Session Description: The authentic nature of simulations can be highly motivating for even your hardest to reach students. When used properly, instructional simulations can empower student learning, helping students to set goals, seek feedback, and demonstrate what they have learned. Learn to choose simulations that model the relationships between concepts studied. In this session, we will discuss how to best use simulations in the classroom to increase student achievement, allow students to reflect on what they have learned, and transfer their knowledge to new problems and situations. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.

As a result of this session teachers will:

  1. Understand the value of using simulations in the classroom;
  2. Explore instructional simulations; and
  3. Plan for the use of simulations in the instructional setting.
