Role-Playing Simulations in Education

Here is an interesting article on the role of simulations in education.  This actually deals with an online simulation where scenarios are set up and explained to the student beforehand.

Exercises like these simulations are an excellent way to navigate around two of the larger problems in trying to teach: trying to demonstrate relevance of task and giving experience to the studied theory.

It’s reminders like this that remind me why I made the deliberate choice to get into informal education!
