Abstract

This proceeding describes a study of the online application entitled simSchool (Gibson n.d.), a classroom simulator that can be used to train pre-service teachers. Participants in the study were trained on the use of simSchool, completed numerous modules, and reflected upon their experiences in an open-ended survey and the Teacher Sense of Efficacy Scale (TSES) instrument. This proceeding focuses on Early Childhood Education pre-service and in-service teachers’ responses to the open-ended survey. Topics addressed include the impact of virtual classroom simulations, the mechanics of navigating a digital environment, and the effects of simSchool on the self-efficacy of pre-service and in-service teachers.
