The Physics of the Roller Coaster: Learning Physics through Simulation.
Hannum, Wallace
Educational Technology, v41 n1 p25-35 Jan-Feb 2001
This instructional design blends a structured learning environment (the physics lesson) with an engaging, playful, simulated environment (roller coaster construction), putting into operation ideas from both cognitive and constructivist theories. Two instructional models are used: a general design model for creating instruction and a lesson design model that specifies how technology-based instruction should operate. (Contains 48 references.)
