ECU I4 A VR Learning Experience

Product Purpose

Spark Plug Games was selected by East Carolina University College of Education to develop a virtual reality learning experience to assist in the training of STEM teachers in their schools to improve teaching practices and academic discourse for equitable student outcomes. Cohorts of school leaders will engage in a professional learning experience in-person and on-line with virtual-reality based coaching. Project I4 uses innovation and inquiry with the intention of iteratively and exponentially impacting equitable math and science results in these ways: utilize evidence-based observation practices in math and science classrooms; revitalizing principal conversations with teachers about improving instructional practices; re-imagining useful professional learning experiences for teachers.
