Summary

To successfully prepare teachers for the classrooms of tomorrow, teacher education programs must ensure all prospective educators possess both the knowledge and the skills to apply that knowledge in real classroom settings. The secret to achieving this? Teacher education efforts focused on gaming. By engaging teacher candidates in role plays, VRs, and other scenarios, we can create a next generation of teachers prepared to lead classrooms focused on the personalized learning and cognitive science that will soon dominate K-12 education. This panel will explore some of the gaming approaches pursued by MIT, as well as a new open-source approach to transform teacher education nationally.
