Real world-experiences paper given in Orlando Sloan-C conference 2013 Real world-experiences paper given in Orlando Sloan-C conference 2013 Presentation Transcript

  • Bringing Real World Experiences to online learning using simulation John Bourne, Ph.D Chief Academic Officer American Sentinel University Executive Director Emeritus, The Sloan Consortium Emeritus Professor at Olin College, Babson College
  • Why consider Simulation for “Real World Experiences? • • • 3-D Simulations based on game engines provide high-fidelity realism. The way students learn best is by “doing”; “doing” things can be done in a 3-D world. • But, it is a challenge to “do” online – we think 3D simulations provide that affordance through situated learning in immersive environments. 3-D Game technology now provides an excellent platform for creating learning situations that are: • • • 2 Engaging, Immersive, Situated Capture concepts and easily transfer to real world Hypothesis: students will learn better, retain knowledge longer and be able to apply knowledge in their careers with more use of immersive simulations in their education.
  • Computer-based Educational Simulations Progress over the decades
  • Steamer – circa 1980s
  • Work in South Korea – 15 years ago. Appeared in IMEJ; with permission.

  • Chemistry sim: Concord Consortium
  • The Movement to: “Real Experiences”
  • Loyalist College massively improves test scores and training outcomes in border crossing simulation
  • Virtual Blended 10 Above: from VenueGen
  • Health Simulations are being implemented to teach: Diagnostic Skills Communication Skills Health Promotion Environmental Health
  • Tox Town: National Library of Medicine (NIH)
  • Affordances for Sims Sciences: Physics, Chemistry, Biology Health Care: Nursing, Medicine, Pharmacy, Informatics Arts and Sciences, General Ed: History, Sociology, Literature…… Technology: Programming, CS, IS, Game Design and Building, GIS, Engineering: Mechanical/manufacturing: Chemical: chemical plants , process flow; Civil -construction, historical events (e.g., Tacoma narrows) Math: using affordances of 3D mathematical knowledge, learning math through visualization, game design 13
  • Creating a Mash-up Strategy for Delivery Hello: This is Rick, I’m your guide-on-theside. Ask me about things you want to know about using this learning system: Traditional Web 14 1 Virtual Campus 2 Artificial Intelligence 3
  • The Virtual Campus
  • Museum and Resource Center • Slides on nursing history (walk around, review, talk to docents) • Resources for how to use tools (e.g. Turn it in, ePortfolios, Moodle) • Staffed by bots and student success advisors
  • Virtual Learning Center
  • Nursing Theorists The Florence Nightingale Bot Dialogs
  • The Appalachian Community Environment
  • The View the Student Sees (nursing)
  • Assessing Simulations Characteristic Description Onboarding Introduction provides explanation tutorial and practice Interaction Robust interaction with sim Feedback Immediate feedback given Identity Learning identifies with own identity in-world Immersion Immersion provides “Flow” (Csikszentmihalyi) Pleasurable frustration Provides challenges that are overcome with work Manipulation Objects in-world can be manipulated (fluid) Increasing skills/knowledge Scaffolded learning is evident and clear Rules Rules are provide at outset Informed learning Students understand what the rules are Pedagogy The material could not be taught without the sim Multi and single player COI is evident and NPCs used for anywhere-anytime 21
  • View through windshield Windshield Survey for Nursing Community Health course: Systematic observations made from a moving vehicle with an objective of improving health in a community. 22

  • Virtual Hospital/Health Assessment
  • The India Simulation Purpose: Teach how to filter water in an Indian Village that has arsenic in its water
  • The Next Immersion step: Oculus Rift and Razer Hydra How do you teach how to draw blood? Millimeter accuracy
  • Some things you can do! • Learn about educational simulations • Build simulations with Unity 3D engine for free (www.unity3d.com for download). • Talk to Reaction Grid (at this conference) and to our American Sentinel team that is creating sims for STEM fields (especially nursing) • Join the Sloan-C STEM special interest group • Write me (John.Bourne@americansentinel.edu) about your interests
