Abstract: To improve teaching practices to be more culturally responsive to the diversity of classrooms that exists, a simulated teaching program is being implemented to provide reflective feedback intended to reduce implicit biases that may exist. This birds-of-a-feather session is intended to explore ways to validate the use of artificial intelligence in the simulated teaching environment. Pilot data have been collected from year one of a three-year project and results indicate improvement in strategies to teach in a culturally responsive manner. Pre-post survey data as well as simulated gathered data are being used to validate the simulator through changes in teachers’ perceptions.
