Environmental Detectives: PDAs as a Window into a Virtual Simulated World

  title={Environmental Detectives: PDAs as a Window into a Virtual Simulated World},
  author={Eric Klopfer and Kurt Squire and Henry Jenkins},
The use of computer simulations is changing the nature of scientific investigation and providing us unique insights into the way that the world works. As simulation moves from the desktop to more ubiquitous portable devices (such as PDAs), we can draw upon the unique affordances of these devices portability, social interactivity, context sensitivity, connectivity, and individuality. The purpose of this research project is to develop and examine a new simulation platform that is designed from… CONTINUE READING
