This paper presents a study on the construction of knowledge about teaching with the support of technological resources in initial teacher education courses. The objective is to discuss the use of mixed reality in the simulation of classroom management by interns. The text resulted from a doctoral research that is in progress at the Graduate Program in Education at the Santa Catarina State University (UDESC), Brazil. The study is qualitative and its field of observation was a practice carried out in the TeachLive™ mixed reality environment by a teacher of the undergraduate mathematics course at UDESC with a class of five academics who were attending an internship discipline. TeachLivE™ is a mixed reality virtual laboratory aimed at teacher training that promotes the interaction of the human participant with a virtual environment that simulates, remotely and in real time, a classroom with the presence of avatars that represent students. In the experience reported here, the mathematics course interns interacted in individual sessions of about ten minutes with students (avatars) of a virtual elementary school classroom to show their classroom management strategies. The data were collected in the observation of the experience and in a questionnaire applied to the participating interns and were analyzed by the Discursive Textual Analysis. The results showed the technological and pedagogical potential of mixed reality, as it allows the construction of knowledge on theoretical and practical topics related to teacher training in a virtual environment, which is a promising possibility for interns who are in training.
