Join Karl Kapp for an in-depth discussion in this video Games, gamification, and simulations, part of Gamification of Learning.
…Closely related to a game and often confused with the concept of…games is the idea of a simulation which occurs apart from other activities.…A simulation is a realistic controlled risk environment where learners can…practice specific behaviors or decisions, and…experience the impacts of their behaviors and or those decisions.…The most familiar type is that of a flight simulator,…where a pilot simulates taking off, landing, and other aeronautical maneuvers.…
In addition to flight simulators, there are many types of simulations.…Ranging from simulations of equipment and software, to simulations of interpersonal…experiences, like a leadership simulation where a learner is given…the opportunity to practice providing feedback and direction to subordinates.…Simulations can be conducted in both an online environment and…in a face to face environment.…When done face to face, they're often called role plays.…And while a simulation may contain game elements, such as earning points for…the right action taken, the focus is…
