Simulation and Research Models as Teaching Tools
The most challenging task for an author of a computer-assisted instruction program is to capture and hold the student user’s attention. A system designed for elective education — where student motivation can neither be coerced or assumed — can and should have distinct, even dramatic advantages over classical methods. Thoughtfully organized, computer-based programs can be intrinsically compelling and can bring a quality of excitement to learning that is possible no other way.
