Evaluation of a Program to Train School Development and Research Specialists in the Use of Simulation Models. Research Training Report.
Farber, Irvin J.
A program was designed to allow key research, planning, and instructional personnel of the School District of Philadelphia to begin exploring the usefulness of simulation for planning purposes in the school system. Twenty-nine school district personnel participated in a city model game in which members of the several sectors of the "city" interact and make decisions according to the instructions of the game's developers. Because of hardware difficulties, the program did not reach its desired goal. As a result of the study, it is recommended that a careful examination of the current state of simulation and the models available be conducted before trying such programs in schools. (Author/SP)
