Title
Simulations : new 'worlds' for learning?
Source

Abstract
Considers the role of computer-based simulations in an educational context. From dynamic spreadsheets through microworlds to virtual reality, the convenience and the intrinsic appeal of simulated environments exist in tension alongside concerns regarding the relationship of the simulated to the real and the consequences for human thought, learning and behaviour. Examines these issues in relation both to familiar educational computing environments and to others under development
