ASSESSING THE EFFECT AND TRANSFER VALUE OF A CLASSROOM SIMULATOR TECHNIQUE.
VLCEK, CHARLES W.
INVESTIGATIONS WERE CONDUCTED ON (1) THE EFFECT OF A CLASSROOM SIMULATOR IN PROVIDING TEACHER-TRAINEES WITH EXPERIENCE IN IDENTIFYING AND COPING WITH CLASSROOM PROBLEMS PRIOR TO THEIR STUDENT TEACHING EXPERIENCE, (2) THE TRANSFER VALUE OF THE CLASSROOM SIMULATOR EXPERIENCE, AND (3) THE EFFECT OF THE SIMULATOR IN TEACHER-TRAINEE SELF-CONFIDENCE. IN ADDITION, THE STUDY MEASURED TEACHER-TRAINEE ATTITUDES TOWARD THEIR CLASSROOM SIMULATOR EXPERIENCE. AN EXPERIMENTAL AND CONTROL GROUP WHICH WERE SELECTED RANDOMLY FROM A JUNIOR-LEVEL ELEMENTARY BLOC WERE USED. THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP RECEIVED 9 HOURS OF CLASSROOM SIMULATOR EXPERIENCE WHILE THE CONTROL GROUP RECEIVED AN ORIENTATION SESSION ONLY. CONCLUDING STATEMENTS INDICATED THAT (1) EFFECTIVE RESPONSES TO CLASSROOM PROBLEMS CAN BE DEVELOPED THROUGH CLASSROOM SIMULATOR EXPERIENCES PRIOR TO TEACHING ASSIGNMENTS, (2) AWARENESS OF CLASSROOM PROBLEMS IS APPARENTLY POSSESSED BY TEACHER TRAINEES PRIOR TO CLASSROOM SIMULATOR EXPERIENCE, (3) PRINCIPLES WHICH CAN BE USED IN SOLVING CLASSROOM PROBLEMS CAN BE DEVELOPED THROUGH CLASSROOM SIMULATOR EXPERIENCES, (4) EXPERIENCE GAINED IN RESPONDING TO PROBLEMS WITHIN THE CLASSROOM SIMULATOR DO NOT TRANSFER TO THE TEACHER-TRAINEES' STUDENT TEACHING EXPERIENCE, (5) PRINCIPLES DEVELOPED FOR APPLICATION IN SOLVING CLASSROOM PROBLEMS DO TRANSFER TO THE TEACHER TRAINEE'S STUDENT TEACHING EXPERIENCE, AND (6) TEACHER-TRAINEES' CONFIDENCE IN ABILITY TO TEACH IS INCREASED THROUGH CLASSROOM SIMULATOR EXPERIENCE.
