Academic Solutions Group is excited to announce a new partnership with Schools Sims!
SchoolSims provides collaborative and engaging professional development simulations for current school leaders, aspiring school leaders, teachers, and teacher candidates. Founded on the maxim that Experience is the Best Teacher, SchoolSims provides relevant experiences for participants, whether playing the simulations synchronously or asynchronously. Simulations offer a chance to practice new concepts and provide opportunities to improve value skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration. SchoolSims are browser-based, choose-your-own-scenario simulations that align with the PSEL, NELP, CAEP, and InTasc standards. Simulations help to establish a shared culture and improve individual, team, and organizational performance through scalable and safe “experiences-in-a-box.” SchoolSims offers subscription access to an extensive, proprietary library of topical simulations, which can be facilitated with small or large groups either in-person or online or be self-administered asynchronously.
The team at Academic Solutions Group is happy to work with schools and districts as they adopt a solution from SchoolSims. Academic Solutions Group leads organizations to achieve sustainable results. Through the use of data-driven practices, development of customized tools and responsive coaching, stakeholders grow their capacity and agency to achieve their desired goals.
