School districts across the country are using virtual reality to give educators practice with avatars before they into head into the workplace. Virtual reality provides a safe space for learners to build their skills by making mistakes and learn from them, without harming themselves or others. In this session, you’ll see a live, interactive simulation and learn how VR can be leveraged to create a safe practice space for teachers and school leaders to practice challenging interactions they face in K-12 settings each day. You will also see examples of work in simulation being done today with school district leaders at multiple districts. Come see how educators are using virtual reality to master their toughest on the job moments.
