Gaming and Computer Simulation as Problem-Solving Vehicles in Higher Education
Thorson, Esther
Liberal Education, 63, 2, 284-300, May 77
Several approaches to problem solving are reviewed, followed by a brief overview of simulation, including its definition and some of the strong and weak points of the literature. It is argued that simulation is itself a problem-solving endeavor and that justifying the heuristic use of simulation requires evidence that it fosters general problem-solving skill in the student.
