ATTN all teachers: FREE Replicated Reality for the remainder of the school year.
Notice from TAI - Talent Assessment, Inc., the publisher of PAES, and Replicated Reality:
With school closures, conference cancellations and many schools across the country going to virtual learning environments and online solutions, we want to help. That is why we are offering the classroom version of Replicated Reality to any interested teacher for the remainder of the school year. This includes one teacher license and up to 30 students.
Here is the link to sign up for Replicated Reality:
No cost to teachers for distance learning!
Replicated Reality is a cloud based framework that teachers customize for virtual learning. Students log in with their email address to access from home. The teacher can post work at home jobs that the students can apply for. Teachers set the payroll that is deposited to the students on line banking account. Teachers can invoice and charge rent to the students, etc. This is the basic concept. Teachers can link worksheets, websites and curriculum of their own to assign to students.
Attn: PAES, Transition, Work and Life Skills Educators:
For those of you wanting work and life skills for distance learning with your students, boards have now been added to Replicated Reality that include sample at-home activities that align with any transition program. If you have already signed up for a trial account – you can see them under Jobs > Manage Job Boards > Class Name> Available Shared Job Boards. To import them into your classroom, all you have to do is click the [+] button. Once in your classroom, you can customize, add to, or delete jobs within the board.
As teachers struggle to move from hands-on classroom activities to virtual learning, these boards can provide a spark to how Replicated Reality can help them and their student transition. Each job is meant to be a full week activity (do this every day for a week), and will work the payroll system to pay for assigned jobs each week. Students can hold multiple jobs at a time. The best thing is it is completely customizable and editable for each teachers account.
The ability to directly link jobs to real-world occupational codes allows your students to explore their dream job!
Create job boards your students can apply for, interview, and work to earn money and work experience.
Students learn money management through a cashless economy complete with online banking, automatic bill-pay, and direct deposit.
Desk rental system allows your students the experience of managing a contractual rental agreement and recurring bill.
Built in reward motivation that allows students to exercise their creativity and build their very own virtual world.
R-Squared Community & Classroom Rewards
Teachers can talk to other teachers about the program and submit ideas for classroom rewards!

“It has been an honor, and great privilege to see the progress and participation from schools in Minnesota, South Dakota, North Dakota and Wisconsin participating in TAI’s national beta test for Replicated Reality. I’d have to say that I’m especially proud of Park Rapids, MN who has not only been a very active beta test site, but also a contributor to the bones of Replicated Reality. One trimester in, Park Rapids lead teacher Matt Brandt sends an email to TAI which is eventually forwarded on to me.”
Heidi Johnson, Transition Consultant and Sales Rep for Replicated Reality
“We just started a new trimester here, so I ended all jobs for students and they will be re-applying for jobs again next week. I love the summary report as it will have everything on one sheet for all students. The kids are loving this program and our Superintendent saw the program for the first time and was blown away with it and wondering how we can get this into other classrooms. It has made our students better. Thanks again for selecting us for this process.”
