Discovery Learning Representation Explanation Within A Simulation

Rieber, L.P., Tzeng, S., & Tribble, K. (2004.) Discovery learning, representation, and explanation within a computer-based simulation: finding the right mix. Learning and Instruction, 14, 307–323.

Rieber, Tzeng, and Tribble explored how adult users interact and learn during an interactive computer-based simulation supplemented with brief multimedia explanations of the content. Results showed significant differences for both the use of the explanations and simulations containing graphical feedback in helping participants gain both implicit and explicit understanding of the science principles.
