Virtual Experiences and the NSW Stage 6 Science Syllabuses.
Placing, Kaye; Fernandez, Anne
Educational software simulations provide a powerful tool for educators, offering an opportunity for learners to experience situations that are otherwise unavailable because they are too dangerous, too expensive, too long in duration, or removed from the learner in time and/or space. In a similar way, the Web offers an even greater audience the opportunity to be involved in a range of scientific experiences particularly in the areas of geology and biology. A number of virtual experiences have been investigated and have been grouped into three categories: virtual field trips; virtual digs; and field trips incorporating virtual reality.
