Simulation and Learning in Disaster Preparedness: A Research and Theory Review
O'Reilly, Daniel J.; Brandenburg, Dale C.
Online Submission
Because of perceived advantages, simulations are increasingly being used for performance-based training. This is a review of computer simulation as a learning tool, and its application within the context of disaster preparedness. Concepts from established learning theory are examined and research verifiable by empirical data is referenced. To summarize, this review found, despite a lack of empirical evidence, there exists wide support for computer simulation as a preferred tool in disaster preparedness. (Contains 1 figure and 1 table.)
