  1. 1. SimulationsJ. Aaron Bolaños P.6076-12-2497
  2. 2. DefinitionA simulation is a representation of an event or incident. It contains simulated elements.It is a model made by a computer of a real or an imaginary system. It shows how effectively works.Provides the opportunity to manipulate information that affects the experience.
  3. 3. Simulations Categorieso Physical Simulations: These offer the opportunity to manipulate objects represented in a screen.o Process Simulations: These are based on experimentation with genetic rules, for example.o Situational Simulations: These are from students’ situations to solve.o Procedural Simulations: These show the appropiate sequence to perform a process.
  4. 4. Characteristics of Simulations Vision of Knowledge: At the time it is developed a simulation, the teacher changes his way to provide information to students. An Authentic Problem: Simulations are based of problems or real-life situations. A context or Setting: All kind of simulations are based on an imaginary context. And this imaginary scenario it is represented in a series of graphics.
  5. 5.  Variables: The teacher defines the various the different scenarios or steps that students will manipulate. Rules of Interaction: These are directed by the interaction of the game and learning process.

  7. 7. Advantages Associated toComputer Simulations Student involvement Low cost Safety Better transfer Reduced threat and anxiety Encouragement of socialization and collaboration Adjustments to realism to maximum learning Making the impossible, possible
  8. 8. Limitations Associated withComputer Simulations Time demands More threat and anxiety Adoption of the material but not the concept. Deciding when to intervene directly is difficult. Objectives mismatch Competitive focus
  9. 9. Teaching with Simulations Presentation: Simulation require a careful and detailed background preparation of students. Debriefing: Teacher must provide to students a series of questions that must be develop in the simulation. Group Work: Teaching with simulations enhances collaboration into the members of a group.
  10. 10. Conclusions Simulations are a representative form of learning through technology. Simulaltions provide a collaborative learning between the students. At the time the teacher is presenting a topic with simulations, it requires a previous preparation.
