Technology and Simulation

(based on the concept of parallelism and the PI theory for designing open web environments)

== learn to build your own learning enviroments with you own applets ==
(build in Java with the templates of the javaTHESIS system)

New: the results of 2001/2002
Old: the results of 2000/2001
the results of 1999/2000
the results of 1998/1999
and the results of 1997/1998.

Here you see a simulator about the Dutch economy. The user
can learn how an small open economy runs.



Part 1: The organisation of the course

  • 1. The first task is: find out what kind of theories are important in this field: (References) (Abstracts)
  • 2. The second task is: why these theories are so important for learning enviroments especially these who are based on simulations and/of microworlds?

    Here you see the real life in stock market. You know the future when you understand the past. (Just as a user can learn in web-based learning environments with model-driven simulations.)

  • 3. The third task is: built your own simulation in an information-rich, web-based environment.
