On Friday, Feb. 6, Roberta Gentry, assistant professor in the College of Education, will speak at the South Carolina Council for Exceptional Children professional development conference in Myrtle Beach, S.C. Her presentation, “Supporting Pre-Service Special Educators in the Virtual World,” reviews research conducted using TeachLive to train pre-service teachers. The TeachLive Lab uses a mixed-reality (blended real and virtual characters), avatar-based (virtual characters controlled by human performers) simulated environment. In the TeachLive Lab, candidates build content and pedagogical skills in a controlled environment that enables consistent data collection, immediate feedback, and ongoing assessment.
