Digital Simulation in Education.
Simulation as a mode of computer use in instruction has been neglected by educators. This paper briefly explores the circumstances in which simulations are useful and presents several examples of simulation programs currently being used in high-school biology, chemistry, physics, and social studies classes. One program, STERIL, which simulates screw-worm fly population changes with the use of pesticides and sterilization techniques, is discussed in detail. (RB)
