Early Childhood Education AI Lab Simulation

South Central College


SimSchool is an internet-based simulation program that simulates a classroom. SimSchool has the potential to change the way pre-service teachers are trained, as well as offer in-service training opportunities for educators working in rural settings. Through the use of this innovative software, South Central College will be one of the first two-year public colleges in Minnesota to bring real-time AI lab simulation to early childhood classrooms.
