绩效模拟器是一个基于体验式学习和情境学习理论,以计算机及媒界为辅助的学习工具,在知识,态度和技能这三个层面上同时加强和提高学员的核心和特殊能力。

绩效模拟器基于神经学、心理学的理解,认为能力可由知识、态度和技能三方面构成。通过对知识、态度和技能确定相应的行为指针,使得能力的培养可被观察并得到训练,从而帮助学习者掌握每种能力。

华东师范大学开放教育学院和德国赛德拉克管理咨询集团正在将绩效模拟器引入到中国教师培训课程中。目前正在开发“技术改变教学”中的“信息技术支持的课堂管理”课程,依据《全国中小学教师信息技术应用能力标准》为依据,形成支持教师发展信息技术支持的课堂管理能力的课程系列。

The PERFORMANCE SIMULATOR® is a computer- and media-based training tool for a targeted competence measurement and development, which can be used by decentralized employee groups with a mobile device independent of time and space. With this innovative technology necessary learning and change processes can be successfully established in the organization.

The conception of the PERFORMANCE SIMULATOR® integrates neuroscientific findings regarding brain-friendly learning arrangements to develop a unique concept for an experience-oriented and situational learning program. The PERFORMANCE SIMULATOR® creates a real-life learning environment by simulating success-critical situations, which have to be assessed by the learners. A virtual coach provides direct feedback and supports the trainees in understanding the situation, learning from it and in putting the learning into practice.

The first PERFORMANCE SIMULATOR® in China is designed to prepare teachers for the future undertaken by the “ECNU-S&P Research Center for ICT-Enabled Systemic Changes and Innovations“. In context of the Chinese governmental initiative, which aims at a middle- to long-term reform of the educational system, Prof. Zhiting Zhu and Hanbing Yan initiated a comprehensive training program. The long-term program started in 2015 under the title "Technology Changes Teaching". The primary goal of this program is to improve the educational opportunities and study achievements of pupils and students through the targeted use of digital media in classrooms.
