Of course there are no 100% guarantees in life, but when you have a positive mindset like the one this quote instills you’ve got a pretty good shot at getting it right.

1. What is a Simulation? - How To Do Simulation Games

Is it the same as a game, or a role play? Is it problem- or enquiry-based learning? Does it imply something particular? In simple terms, a simulation is a recreation of a real-world situation, designed to explore key elements of that situation. It is a simplification and essentialisation of some object or process that allows participants to experience that object or process. However, beyond that very broad definition, simulations are what you make of them. The enormous flexibility that simulations offer gives instructors a world of opportunity to explore materials in new, engaging and memorable ways.

However, simulations go beyond the active-learning assumption. Games tend to fall at the simpler end of the spectrum – e.g. in creating very stylised environments – but also shade into the related worlds of video-gaming and serious games. Popplet.

Personalizing Social Emotional Learning with Google Forms

As a result, I was unable to leverage technology for better “personalization” in my classroom, and so I leveraged relationships, instead. I “personalized” by getting to know my students deeply--beyond just their academic strengths and weaknesses. By knowing what was going on at home, their emotional triggers and what motivated them, I was able to make sure their needs were met beyond my classroom - which led to much greater academic success within it. Now, I am an Assistant Principal at Alpha: Blanca Alvarado Middle School, and my school has all the technology I was missing. We have one to one laptops for every student and a blended learning model. With more than 480 students under my care, I can’t have consistent, meaningful conversations with each individual student.

As business people, we don’t typically try to understand this process. We fully expect that when designers, inventors, and other creative people go into a room with a goal, they will come out with more or less creative discoveries and results. Although when we watch them at work, we can observe some combination of sketching, animated conversations, messy desks, and drinking. But the fundamental nature of what happens in that room remains mostly a mystery. Login. Zaption - Interact & Learn with Video Lessons.
