Simu-School: A Tool and Process for Educational Planning. Final Report.
Burr, Donald F.
The greatest challenge facing education today is the need to plan adequately for the future. Effective educational planning can work only if all elements of the community are involved in the decisionmaking process, the relevant factors and variables in the educational environment are considered, and the nature of the learning/teaching process in education is understood. As proposed, SIMU-SCHOOL would use simulation techniques to recreate the educational planning process. By utilizing a management information system as an educational tool, SIMU-SCHOOL would create a time-compressed simulation of a series of planning problems. Using this simulation technique, educational and community planners could become involved and would experience the results of their decisions within a few days instead of several years. (Author/RA)
