Offering efficacious instruction for production based technical education to provide adequate hands-on training has always been a growing concern in technical universities. This paper proposes the use of Digital Twins as a tool for training students on production based systems and justifies the proposition by instantiating learning theories within a pedagogical digital twin framework. Further, the paper investigates how situational awareness can be beneficial in such an environment and its contribution to the overall learning experience.
