Virtual Classrooms are the future of teacher education

Virtual Classrooms are the future of teacher education | Integration and Teaching: Ed Tech | Scoop.it

"Preparing education students to become classroom teachers is a challenging task. There are lots of skills that are easy to teach—how to write a lesson plan, or the best method for teaching basic reading skills, for example. But there are just as many skills that are nearly impossible to teach in the classroom. How can a professor teach future educators how to manage a classroom of behavioral challenges or keep their cool when a student challenges their authority? The answer may lie in the virtual classroom."
