A Basic Reference Shelf on Simulation and Gaming. A Series One Paper from ERIC at Stanford.
Twelker, Paul A.
A short, preliminary discussion of simulation and gaming outlines the various instructional and research techniques which come under the more general heading and lists the properties of each. Six sections of annotated, bibliographic entries serve as a guide to the literature on simulation and gaming. Documents are grouped under the following categories: (1) general discussions of simulation and gaming, (2) media-ascendant simulation (learning through vicarious experience mediated by machines, films, pictures, etc.), (3) inter-personal ascendant simulation (characterized by decision-making, role playing, and player interaction), (4) games that do not involve simulation, (5) the use of simulation to assess performance (situational response testing), and (6) bibliographies. Centers where work is being done on simulation techniques, as well as the names of professional organizations concerned with these techniques are listed. Finally, the titles of journals and newsletters which carry current information on the field are provided. (MT)
