This paper presents the final report of progress of the EDUCAUSE-funded SITE simSchool Modules Project from April 2011 to July 2012. The goals of the simulation-based project were to (1) facilitate initial adoption of simSchool in teacher education programs worldwide, (2) create a sustainable ecosystem to promote deeper learning in teacher education, and (3) improve the simSchool learning experience while also widening the contexts of its use. Sections of the report describe activities and accomplishments, relating them to the goals and timelines set forth in the original proposal; the immediate and possible long-term impacts of the project; the strategies and activities that were most and least effective; what project leaders would have done differently; the collaborative activities of the project; future prospects and the overall impact of the project.
