How AI Can Help Teachers Simulate Success

What do pilots, doctors, and armchair quarterbacks have in common? They all have access to high-quality simulators to help them learn and advance in their respective fields. While pilots log many hours in a flight simulator before getting their wings, teachers could also benefit greatly from technology that allows them to navigate potentially challenging scenarios before setting foot in a classroom. In this session, presenters will discuss the virtual classroom they are piloting, along with the challenges, successes, and possibilities of developing an AI-driven teaching simulator.
