Abstract: Often in preservice teacher education, differing cultures are discussed, but it is difficult for learners to truly understand the differences in cultures and how they affect every-day lives of people. To address this issue and to attempt to assist pre-service teachers come to a deeper understanding of those issues of diversity, the researchers implemented the Real LivesĀ® educational simulation software into an Elementary Education Teaching Methods course. Results of the study will be discussed.
