How a Best-in-Class Technological Innovation Is Modernizing Teacher Prep

According to the 2017 Workplace Learning Report, over 50% of learning professionals say that developing strong leaders is the number one objective for their organization. Coaching, communication, and collaboration top the list of skills for leaders, and large organizations report communication skills are more in demand than technical skills. This applies not only to companies’ employees but also for preparing teachers—who need to be adept at having high stakes conversations with their students, peers, administrators and students’ parents and guardians. Now add to that mix a public health crisis that has forced the issue of training while working from home (WFH).

In this white paper ,“Best in Class Leadership Development: How Virtual Reality and Avatars are Changing the Learning Landscape,” you will learn about modern, remote learning experiences that harness today’s technology to affect real behavior change. Backed by research, and no longer novel, simulations and use of avatars to assist learning is playing an increasingly major role in improving human interactions. Here is an outline of the white paper:

  1. Introduction
  2. Virtual Reality (VR) Simulations for Learning at Scale
  3. Advantages of Avatars
  4. Research Base for VR Simulations
      1. Research Studies Examining Effects of Mursion VR Simulations
      2. Best Western Case Study for VR Simulations at Scale
      3. Educational Testing Service (ETS) Case Study for Consistent, Reliable VR Simulations at Scale
  5. Applications for Leadership Development
  6. VR Simulations at Scale
  7. Conclusion

Now more than ever, today’s educators deserve all the support we can give them as they shape the minds of our future leaders.
