  1. Framework for Evaluating Simulations: Analysis of Student Developed Interactive Computer Tools

    21 Jul 2014 | Contributor(s):: Kelsey Joy Rodgers, Heidi A Diefes-Dux, Krishna Madhavan

    Computer simulations are discussed in the learning environment from two major perspectives: 1) teaching students how to build simulations and 2) developing simulations to teach students targeted concepts. This study is approaching learning with simulations from a different perspective. We are...
