  1. Selecting Simulation Authoring Tools and Environments By: Simon Puleo

  2. Why Experiential Learning? “Tell me, and I will forget. Show me, and I may remember. Involve me, and I will understand.” Confucius 450 BC

  3. Experiential Learning Benefits • Learner • Practice in a safe environment • Ask questions • Discover the correct path • Administrator • Track performance in a simulated environment • Use statistical analysis to uncover critical paths • Designer • Create true performance based objectives • Create evidence based simulations that assess against actual performance

  4. Screen Based Simulation Types • Physical Skill • Perform an operation • Play a sport • Technical Skill • Perform a procedure • Discover evidence through process or analysis • Create evidence by using a procedure or analysis • Social Skill • Analyze and discover the meaning of a conversation • Educate others • Influence others • Lead or be part of a team • Criticize/take criticism • Use specific language or jargon to convey meaning • Defend a person, product or idea • Sell/Present a concept or product • Negotiate • Show resilience • Reacting quickly (Thinking on your feet)
