Simulation as a Metaphoric Method of Communication Education.
Lee, Jae-won; And Others
Simulation seems to give at least a partial methodological answer to the pragmatic concept of learning by experience (and to the rising cry for social relevance in school curricula). Expecting, in the years ahead, increasing practices of various simulation techniques in classroom situations, there is need to re-examine some basic assumptions of the purposes of simulation and its efficiency as an educational method. In this paper, several concepts likely to help make simulation a heuristically useful process of communication education are discussed. This paper explores and supports the theoretical position that "an educational simulation should be a method of metaphor, not a realistic simile." (LG)
