The Transparency Paradox: Computational Simulations as Learning Tools for Engineering Graduate Education
08 Apr 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Alejandra J. Magana, Sean Brophy,
Computational simulations have become a critical part of computational science, which is being described as the third leg in this century’s methodologies of science. Computational simulations have also become a critical element of learning experiences as they can provide engineering students with...
Are Simulation Tools Developed and Used by Experts Appropriate Experimentation Tools for Educational Contexts?
Simulations and visualizations can lead to significant improvements in students'conceptual understanding. This increased understanding may be due to the formation of expert-like dynamic mental models. Laboratory simulations have been used in educational contexts forinquiry learning by allowing...
Professors' Instructional Approaches and Students' Perceptions of nanoHUB Simulations as Learning Tools.
Simulations can provide a critical element of learning experiences. Simulations are alsobecoming a critical part of computational science, which is being described as the thirdlegin this century's methodologies of science (Sabelli, et. al, 2005). Opportunities existto use the same simulation as...
