Many studies have shown that students learn best when a variety of teaching methods are used, and that different students respond best to different methods. To this end, computers are being used more and more as teaching tools, to provide students with a wider variety of learning experiences. These approaches include multimedia presentations, computerized question-and-answer sessions, and some quite realistic simulations of situations too complex, costly, or hazardous to bring into the… CONTINUE READING
