Extreme Learning: Decision Games
By Murray Bourne, 13 Jun 2005
Deep and meaningful learning takes place in authentic settings. When it is too dangerous or expensive to allow learners to experience real settings, simulations are the answer. They don't have to be computer-based simulations - it can be achieved by well-designed role-play.
On a related note, it can be argued that demonstrating "good practice" is a waste of time. We learn a lot more from mistakes - our own and others'.
What is missing from a lot of institutional learning is any sense of authenticity and learning from (scaffolded) failure. For more on this, see Extreme Learning: Decision Games
