Even Physics students at UCF practice their instructional practices.  In the TeachLive simulator undergrad pre-service Physics students took turns teaching a high school Physics lesson.  They then reflected on their delivery, received feedback from their professor, and TRIED IT AGAIN...only better!  All of this was done without hurting student learning and only helping teachers get better.

52 Days Left until the TeachLivE Conference

Just wanted to send a quick reminder to sign up for the TeachLivE conference.  Space is limited!

Congrats to Nazan Bautista for Award-Winning Work with TeachLivE

Nazan Bautista, Miami University associate professor of teacher education, has received the 2014 National Technology Leadership Initiative (NTLI) Fellowship award for the study she presented at the Association for Science Teacher Education (ASTE) conference held January in San Antonio, Texas. 
Bautista’s study investigated the impact of a mixed-reality teaching environment (TeachLivE Lab) on preservice early childhood teachers’ understanding of inquiry-based science and self-efficacy beliefs. The TLE TeachLivE ™ simulated teaching environment uses computer-generated avatars to be as similar to real students as possible.
The NTLI Fellowship award has been given since 2000 and is sponsored by the Society for Information Technology and Teacher Education (SITE). The award is given to researchers for their exemplary use of technology in teacher preparation with the purpose of furthering dialogue within professional associations regarding appropriate technology use in teacher education.
Bautista will receive a plaque and $1,000 from Vernier Software & Technology. She will present her work at the 25th annual SITE conference on March 19 in Jacksonville, Florida.

UCF Students Up the Ante

At UCF, students can even use the TeachLivE lab to work on their individual teaching skills. If you are interested in becoming an even more skilled teacher, ask you professor to sign you up. If time is available, you can practice in the lab for an hour with the lab coach, Pam Jones. This is just one of the many perks of going to school at UCF.
