Virtual Reality in Educating Leaders: First Renew the Professor.
Despite demands for innovative classroom techniques, many educational-administration professors continue to use the lecture paradigm in their courses. This paper argues for a "virtually real" classroom, which demonstrates to students the reformed school that they will facilitate as future administrators. It also discusses the need for professors of educational administration to assume new roles in their classrooms, that of facilitators and mentors. The most important component in the virtually real classroom is considered to be the student. Some innovative components of an educational administration course include: (1) student choice; (2) team work and collaborative learning processes; (3) school-based problem solving; (4) authentic tasks focused on problem solving; and (5) authentic assessment.
