Looking at Tin Can will reveal a bit of the future of learner tracking and open opportunities for future educational research. Great!

Rapid Prototyping For Mobile Learning Applications – II

Upside Learning

The term ‘fidelity’ is also commonly used in simulations and means essentially the same thing. Functional – how the application will behave – determine if you need static screens, or will the prototype be interactive and respond to user activity. Earlier creating high-fidelity simulations involved programming, today there are tools that allow users to drag and drop widgets, controls and rendering schemes into a functional prototype. These can simulate the functions of the final product, right down to the feature and database interaction.

Based on his favourite class = recess, he concluded that the best learning activities are those using all of our senses to interact with an educational environment. My own thoughts on using virtual worlds as a means of education: - great for getting experience with simulations; - good for learning any knowledge that is based on sight; - but it is expensive if you want to own or build your own island and virtual environments certainly demand high end equipment for all participants to be able to attend virtual classes => at this point virtual worlds exclude people from low resource areas.
