Abstract

Project ASSET (Appalachian Support for Specialized Education Training) is designed to increase teacher effectiveness and workforce capacity in underserved rural communities in Appalachia. The primary goal of ASSET is to leverage simulation and game-based learning in an online, self-paced, competency-based education (CBE) environment to increase the number of highly effective educators in K-12 high-need schools in rural Appalachia. This is accomplished by building knowledge and skills in evidence based practices that: a) contribute to inclusive school culture, and b) increase access to the general curriculum for students with diverse learning needs in K-12 high-need schools.
