  • 1. Reflection- provides individual learning styles and 2.Benchmark-test simulation3. Measure against learning objectives4. Students have the opportunity to form connections5.Bridging theoretical knowledge with the real world6. Scaffolding, facilitated by the teacher
  • 1. 3D modeling used in science, architecture, computer games, motion pictures, and video games.2. Computer and Games are one of the U.S. top sellers ranking at sales over $7.4 billion dollars.3. Average user is 33 and majority women
  • Rogers (2003) Innovation-Decision Process. Knowledge persuasionDecisionImplementationConfirmation2. I will discuss each one as it pertains to computer simulation in the upcoming slides
  • Many learning tools incorporated into the curriculums now are in the form of games or digital media technology.It makes learning more interesting and entertaining.Children remember better when the lessons are related to real world situations or entertainment.Children today are born into a digital media society so that is what their learning environment has to relate to.According to research, computer simulation increases student achievement.Computer simulation can be used to tell stories, interactive spreadsheets, mathemetics, and virtual tours in science
  • Games make classes engaging: fun, rewards, competitions, discovery, and social worth.Genre of games:Role playing AdventureMultiplayerAction Fighting
  • Computer Simulation helps student s develop analytical and decision-making skills
  • 1. Who would you expect to be (or who are) the innovators and early adopters in your field of work for the innovation you are exploring? What strategies are the most persuasive in convincing them to adopt the innovation?
  • Who do you think would be (or who are) the laggards in terms of rejecting the innovation? What strategies would be best to help move them toward adoption?
  • Scholarships
  • Which combination of perceived attributes would be best for helping your innovation meet critical mass in your industry?

    4. 4. What is Computer Simulation?<br />Computer Simulation is a computer model, or a computational model that is a computer program, or network of computers, that attempts to simulate an abstract model of a particular system. Computer simulations have become a useful part of mathematical modeling of many natural systems in physics, astrophysics, chemistry and biology, human systems in economics, psychology, social science, and engineering. (Wikipedia, 2010)<br />
