Games and Simulations WebQuest
Conduct a WebQuest on simulations and games that promote learning and/ or training. Explain the benefits that simulations and games can offer to a learning experience and the challenges associated with them. Then, examine how simulations and games can motivate learners, how they can promote thinking skills, and how you think they could be used with a JIT approach based on the literature about games and simulations that you have read for our course. Are you more likely to be motivated by training that includes an element of competition or simulates real-world application? Include the resources you found through your WebQuest that support your reasoning.
Guided Response: Respond to at least two of your classmates with feedback. Did they find the same information you did? How was the information each of them presented similar to and/or different from your findings? Evaluate what might account for the differences in your analyses.
