The Future Classroom Lab (FCL) provides pre-service teachers the chance to explore a variety of applications and scenarios that they might face in a classroom of their own after graduation. Pre-service educators can learn to incorporate effective teaching methodologies and applications inside their content areas.
The FCL allows faculty and students to practice teaching, serving K-12 students in a safe, welcoming, supervised environment. Equipped with a team of surveillance cameras, faculty can observe pre-service teaching practices outside the lab without interrupting the teaching process. Pre-service teachers can record their teaching experiences and view them later in order to reflect upon what worked and what didn’t.
