Adapting Work Simulations for Schools
Journal of Educational Computing Research Volume 21, Number 1, ISSN 0735-6331
Analyzes computer-based simulations of workplaces to determine potential problems that might impede their use in school-to-work programs. Simulations were classified according to type and critiqued regarding common usage problems. Concludes that simulations can play an important role in school-to-work transition programs, even if not specifically designed for that purpose. (AEF)
