    • 1. The use of simulation and gaming to enhance learning Presented by: Soledad B. Camacho November 6, 2008 ED Tech-Mr. Jenkins
    • 2. What is computer simulation? <ul><li>The technique of representing the real world by a computer program; &quot;a simulation should imitate the internal processes and not merely the results of the thing being simulated&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>Simulations can enable students to develop familiarity with an activity before they engage in it. </li></ul>
    • 3. Characteristics of simulation: <ul><li>MindMeister </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.mindmeister.com/11728941 </li></ul>
    • 4. Examples of simulation http://zunal.com/evaluation.php?user=8115
    • 5. Educational Games <ul><li>An activity that provides entertainment and teaches you a subject. </li></ul><ul><li>Apply subject matter </li></ul>
    • 6. Examples of games <ul><li>Mineshaft </li></ul>
    • 7. Essential design criteria for Educational Games <ul><li>1.) Winning should be based on knowledge or skills, not randon factors </li></ul><ul><li>2.) The game should address important content, not trivia. </li></ul><ul><li>3.) The dynamics of the game should be easy to understand and interesting for the players but not obstruct or distort learning. </li></ul><ul><li>4.) Students should not lose points for wrong answers. </li></ul><ul><li>5.) Games should not be zero-sum exercises. </li></ul>
    • 8. Brief history of games and simulation for education purposes: <ul><li>War Games </li></ul><ul><li>Military planning of major world powers </li></ul><ul><li>Political-military simulations </li></ul><ul><li>Business and medical education </li></ul><ul><li>**Timeline link: http://mnemograph.com/app/index_ie.php </li></ul>
    • 9. Conclusion <ul><li>Some games and simulations allow students to explore and create materials that they could not work directly with in real life . </li></ul><ul><li>View examples of how simulation and games enhance learning. </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.froguts.com/flash_content/index.html#pins </li></ul>
