Simulation-Based Learning

Simulation-based learning is a constructivist learning model that provides learners with an experience of working on an usually simplified simulated world or system. This approach, widely adopted in military and aviation to maximize training safety and minimize risk, is today used extensively, especially in the medical education.

Simulation-based learning involves learning performed in a computer environment, in which the learner gradually infers the features of the concept model whilst he/she proceeds through the simulation, which may lead to changes in his/her original concept.
