When Owego Free Academy classes moved to remote instruction last Spring, OFA teacher, Sean Swider collaborated with the University of Michigan to utilize their role playing simulation tool ViewPoint to keep students engaged.  Mr. Swider used ViewPoint, developed by the Center for Academic Innovation in collaboration with Liz Gerber, the Jack L. Walker, Jr. Professor of Public Policy at the University of Michigan. The tool allows users to build customized simulations with participants playing roles to learn problem-solving, collaboration, empathy, and communication skills.
